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….

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.

love this site… i’m so glad i found it….

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.

That music during the ending credits was profoundly upbeat and out of place.

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!!!

Honestly, this movie hits hard, this movie is the embodiment of what I believe. β€œAll children deserve parents, but not all parents deserve children.”
