Excellent movie about the effect divorce has on a child.In this day and age,with people divorcing all over the place,it looks dated but still a powerhouse performance from Janette Scott who was 10 years old then. It must be one of first movies dealing with child trauma and therapy,also introducing modern,at the time, methods of dealing with child-neuroses. Well directed and photographed,all the cast does a good job but special notice to child actor Brian Smith who plays Martin ,Jennifer's friend. Supposedly was a hit in its day,and made a big name in UK of its star but her later career was not as successful.Still more than worthwhile watching if only for Janette who shines here.
