A film that gives a child's eye view of the U.K.'s government-run care system for orphans and children in danger.
Two-time Academy Award ® nominee Samantha Morton's directorial debut THE UNLOVED is a powerful and personal look at the strength and resilience of youth. Morton tells the story of eleven year-old Lucy (newcomer Molly Windsor) seeking refuge as a ward of the state from her abusive father (Robert Carlyle). Placed in a tumultuous foster home, Lucy befriends her rebellious teenage roommate Lauren (Lauren Socha), and together they navigate the cold and uncaring world before them. Co-written with Tony Grisoni (FEAR AND LOATHING IN LAS VEGAS) and featuring deeply felt performances, Morton captures the subtle magic and melancholy of childhood while painting an honest portrait of a girl torn between a broken family and an inept social system.
