The unloved

One film that has stayed in our minds for days is The Unloved. Samantha Morton's directorial debut is a powerful drama about a young girl unwanted by her mother and unloved by a violent father. This fictional tale gives such an honest and intimate child's-eye view of the care system (such an ironic name) in the UK. The young lead Molly Windsor as Lucy is so so amazing, she leaves you absolutely astounded at how tough this little girl is and how cruel and uncaring people can be. The last shot on the bus absolutely floored us - in those few minutes you could see Lucy realising her reality and lost hope. It has left us so so very thankful to have grown up on the sunny happy beaches with parents who simply just love us.
