Dated but still relevant today.
9 August 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Viewing this film nowadays, a lot of it appears quite dated. However, the message it tries to put across is still valid to this very day. The story centres around foster parents taking a very troubled 14-year old girl into their home. The trials and tribulations that follow are maybe somewhat predictable, but also realistic and valid. That very fine actress, the ill-fated Rachel Roberts, delivers yet another excellent performance in the lead role as the foster mother. Good support is offered by James Maxwell as her husband. The only jarring note is provided by Annette Whiteley, as the problem child. Hers is a patchy performance and doesn't really satisfactorily convince, unfortunately. Overall the film is absorbing and generally well presented.
