Brilliant movie about the effect caused by divorcing parents on their daughter
This 71 year old can still remember those austere early 1950s days of
Britain with its bomb damage and food rationing.I was a 4 year old when
this film was made and it had a resonant effect on me.Whenever I see a
film with Rosamund John ("The First of the Few", "The Way to the Stars"
"Green for Danger" etc) I think of my dear late mother and the way she
used to look.The acting credit must go to the girl who played Jennifer
in the central role and to the producer who was responsible for an
intelligent screenplay and for highlighting the psychological effect
divorce has on the children of divorcing parents.The danger of
accepting sweets from possible paedophiles was examined and the love of
true friends in this case a young schoolboy who befriends Jennifer.I
applaud this film which I had not previously seen and the lessons drawn
which are still relevant today, and I awarded it 9/10.
