Actress Samantha Morton makes an impressive directing/co-scripting debut with this emotional drama that offers a harrowing look at the British government's child welfare system, as seen through the eyes of 11-year-old Lucy. Neglected or abused by her estranged parents, Lucy is placed in a badly run foster home, where she befriends a victimized fellow resident. Robert Carlyle, Susan Lynch, and Molly Windsor star. 108 min. Widescreen; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital 5.1; Subtitles: English; deleted scenes; interview.
