Wow, what a tear jerker. I just loved this movie and cried my eyes out, in fact I was still crying after the movie and teetered on tears later in the supermarket. I have seen / read a significant amount of material relating to the child immigrants from England (this occurred during the 1950's right up until 1970! Can you imagine). The children were deprived, abused in all possible ways and not educated. The children were used as labourers, cleaners, cooks, farm hands and not paid, in fact most of them were hit with a debt when reaching leaving age.
This wonderful woman Margaret Humphries, a social worker in Nottingham UK, started a reunification project that became bigger than Ben Hur and a project that has become 25 years worth of work.
The movie is about the fight against governments, how responsibility has been shirked by both countries.
Truly a magnificent movie and a fight that continues and requires our support.
