No one cared thus far. Do you?

AKA:
Directed by: Peter Kosminsky
Starring: Brooke Kinsella (Kerry), Billy Geraghty (Dad), Sharon Small (Mum), Colin Salmon (Teacher), Geoffrey Church (Stepdad)
Country: UK, European Cinema
Language: English
Runtime: 01:21:43
Genres: Misery-Depressing, Based on a True Story, Domestic Abuse, Incest, Family, Prostitution, Old-Young

Plot – Spoilers:
This is the best quality of No Child of Mine that we could rustle up and the quality is marginally better than other copies available on the net. But the shitty quality in a way suits the shitty mood of the movie.

Based on a true case from the UK, Kerry is a 10 year-old girl doing well at school but with squabbling parents back at home. She seemingly shares a good relationship with Dad who cares enough to take her out once in a while. It doesn’t take too long though for the veneer to be scraped away as Dad rents her out to a pedo friend who lent him money for another round of poker. And when you think maybe Mum is just another abusive bitch-mom, she gives Kerry a beating before making her go down on her.

No Child of Mine is unrelenting in its misery and refuses to let up. It surely must rank as one of the most miserable movies ever made dealing with child abuse and the British care system.

Excellent TV drama. I saw this on the TV the night it came out, and everyone was talking about it the next day at work. Brutal, shocking, upsetting….

There is nothing shocking in this film, there is not even one sex scene in it. A teen says during the film “Oh no my father gave me to his friend and raped me: and after that it’s all about blah blah blah everything is so suggestive feels more like a documentary than a film

Yeah I too remember this from back in the day, was on BBC2 I believe. The days when the beeb weren’t afraid of making confrontational content. Sad to see what the corporation has become now.

I am surprised she didn’t seek revenge as an adult…..very smart for a 10 year old child. Reality sucks.

This has to be one of the saddest movies regarding child abuse since Bastard Out Of Carolina. I commend Kerry on her strength and will to survive!

This is utterly heartbreaking. Especially as the parents consented, but imagine this x100.000. 1000’s of children across many english towns and cities have been sexually abused in far more disgusting ways than what this naive film shows. And too boot the authorities and police force ignored it for the sake of diversity. Try and get your head around that!!!!!

In these times of lockdowns, it is made harder for victims of abuse to escape. We now have grooming gangs operating in every town and city. The authorities turn a blind eye. I believe Childline was just a front for ensnaring child victims to abuse further. Look who fronted it and funded it. England’s most famous paedo Sir Jimmy Saville.

A slight rest between original post and reply….
A very, very long time ago I did a two year stint of answering phones for the Samaritans. At that time all places were locally funded, staffed and run. The ethic of how to deal with people was set-in-stone. It made no difference if the person calling was 5 or 90 they were treated the same.
Along came childline and its national approach and from the very start I felt it was doing more harm then good by focussing on one particular group and quite obviously became attractive to volunteers whos motives were less than altruistic. It was as if some – severe social disorder – person had created it just so get their frisson on. Much like the loud-end of the trans debate. These well meaning mainly middle-class set ups are normally no better than pie. Rich naive people being manipulated by some of the worst locusts to live on this earth.
I assure you I have done more than rant on a keyboard in my life and I assure you if even a slither of suss behaviour manifested itself in the real world I would be making sure I was more than a bystander to future wrongs.

You’re deprived, mephitic and I pity you. The way you would speak to another human being like that is disturbing, muffles is a refreshing addition here, and your craven abhorrence is gaudy. You’re recrement and diseased.

This movie was so so sad. Great acting, very real. Not like the typical movie where the good guy always wins.

This movie was very hard to watch for me. Very well acted and well made but the story is so sad and horrific and unfortunately true. I would not watch this again although I think it is an important movie with great performances. Very depressing and sad.

Of course, when you have royal pedophiles ruling the country, who do you think is going to get charged? hardly anyone who commits these despicable acts against children. Look at Jimmy Saville the infamous pedophile of the UK, nothing happened to him and he died a free man.

Really good movie but also a very sad movie and to think it was based on a true story this movie made me cry a few different times mostly because nothing was done to any of those monsters that did those terrible things to her

This is without a doubt the bleakest movie I have ever seen. Half the time I wonder if any of these poor kids ever get justice. Dose justice even exist or is justice whatever the government tells you it is? Maybe in cases like these justice and vengeance should go hand in hand. It’s by far the most poignant depressing movie I have ever seen. It’s the definitive effed up movie!!!

Do these kids get justice? No. I was sexually abused at the hands of both my biological father and my maternal cousin and there was no justice for me even though I put off all of the CLASSIC signs of child sexual abuse. My cousin only attacked me once (with my father’s blessing) but my father had his hands on me from infancy until about age 14 when not only was I out of the age range he was attracted to but I had also started my period and was in danger of being impregnated. He mentally, emotionally, physically, and financially abused me from age 14 until I escaped from him at around age 33. When Adult Protective Services got involved my dad lied and said that I abused him and the APS agent basically threatened me into dropping the case. So, in summary, there is no justice for victims of abuse.

If you google its name you’ll understand. They concocted that little story for the exact same reason they decided to become a tranny, a desperate plea for attention, and now they’re getting it.
