Excellent movie based on a true story, 17 January 2008
Author: lfisher0264 from United Kingdom

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

This movie stars the lovely Lea Thompson and tells how her character, Anne Beales, uncovers a "baby farming" scandal in the rural American south in the 40s. The story is told plainly and the historical detail is done well, down to clothes and local shops in small towns. The chief villain is a Miss Tan who runs an unlicensed children's home and seems over-keen on removing children from their homes, or their "illiterate whore" mothers and selling - I mean "giving" - them to rich, needy, childless parents. Lea Thompson sets her jaw and tries to see justice done. Make sure you have a large box of tissues by your side when you watch this movie.
