Directed by Samantha Morton
Two-time Academy Award nominee Samantha Morton's directorial debut THE UNLOVED is a powerful and personal look at the strength and resilience of youth. Morton tells the story of eleven-year-old Lucy (newcomer Molly Windsor) seeking refuge as a ward of the state from her abusive father (Robert Carlyle). Placed in a tumultuous foster home, Lucy befriends her rebellious teenage roommate Lauren (Lauren Socha), and together they navigate the cold and uncaring world before them. With a screenplay by Tony Grisoni (FEAR AND LOATHING IN LAS VEGAS) based on original material by Samantha Morton, THE UNLOVED captures the subtle magic and melancholy of childhood while painting an honest portrait of a girl torn between a broken family and an inept social system.
A powerful and personal look at the strength and resilience of youth through the eyes of Lucy, a ward of the state seeking refuge as from her abusive father.
Cast: Molly Windsor, Robert Carlyle, Susan Lynch, Lauren Socha
So sad what children haft to put up with, Because of the parent's. They didn't ask to be brought into this world! No child should ever suffer be
So very s a
It's so sad what children haft to go threw..because of adults
not much happening...girl walks around feeling like she doesnt belong anywhere an then its over.
Not horror, but horrific in its own way. This takes a look at the system in the UK for abused and abandoned children, through the eyes of an 11-year-old, who is unwanted by her mother and abused by her father. A look at the forgotten, unwanted and unloved children. Sad to watch, it borders on being nightmare fuel, but it's not a horror movie.
