A surprisingly good B feature
11 October 2013 | by (Victoria, BC) – See all my reviews

Movie director Richard Fleischer made some good movies in his career, but also made his share of stinkers. Happily, "Child of Divorce" - the first feature film he directed - is one of his good movies. Although it only runs about 60 minutes long, its brief length seems appropriate for this particular story, and manages to pack a good amount of punch along the way. There seem to be two main themes in the movie, the first obviously being that divorce is a bad experience for anyone directly or indirectly involved. The second is that all people, whether adults or children, can be cruel at times. Obviously the child's parents are cruel to each other, but there are also some incidents of the parents being cruel to their child, and the child being cruel towards her parents. Related to this is the message that life itself can be cruel, but the ending does suggests that there can be hope for the future. The acting by the main players is very good, including Sharyn Moffett as the title child. If there is any real problem with this overall very good movie, it is that there is some below average acting by some supporting child actors, though fortunately they aren't given that much to do.
