Plot Outline:

Based on the true story of Margaret Humphreys, a social worker from Nottingham who discovered a secret the British government tried to keep hidden: the forced migration of 130,000 children, many of whom suffered abuse, and nearly singlehandedly brought to scandal to world-wide attention. -- Chris Kavan

a great movie with a supreme cast. The caracters are so alive and the story is told in a very calm but intensive way. It was fascinating to see how things escalate. I agree with Joey that this picture diserve a 5 star rating.

4/4 

If you're into gritty, cutting edge dramas then this movie is for you. Miles away from the campness of Hollywood, Jim Loach has created an engaging film filled with suspense and intrigue. All this is done with precision and skill, while all the time maintaining the credibility that a factual drama such as this deserves. Emily Watson succeeds in paying apt tribute to the hard work of the real Margaret Humphreys. Overall I would give this movie 5 stars - a must see!
