Let's Just Forget Hollywood For a moment Here! ! !
2 October 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

If you are reading this, you have truly stumbled across something out standing! let's just forget about all the Hollywood films you may have seen and get back to reality for an hour and a half! The majority of the acting in this mini series is just incredible,and we are talking about children here! Usually British child actors are dismal,but in this instance it is not to be. I watched this film in the presence of a huge guy who's idea of fun is to have a battle in a bar after drinking and watching football,this film brought him to his knees. Christine Tremarco and the rest of the cast need a medal for this!

This film is a one off,you will not see anything like this again if you live to be 200 years old. This is the story of young children who have been shipped off to Australia believing their parents no longer wanted them,which wasn't the case here. The children were lead to believe they were being taken in for postures greener,how wrong could they be?

Be warned, this film is brutal and some may be sick to their stomach, but you have to watch it,it will give you an insight on life itself! Plus remember,this really happened it's not fiction,which with that in mind makes it more hard hitting!
