PG Certificate


Our Score
Former St Elsewhere actor Eric Laneuville directed this often gripping fact-based tale about a woman who tried to expose an illegal adoption ring in the 1940s. Lea Thompson of Back to the Future fame is the Memphis welfare worker looking after abused and neglected children who's introduced to the respected woman (Mary Tyler Moore) who runs an adoption agency with a hidden secret. Although Thompson is impressive, it is Moore who steals the show, proving not only that she has left her dippy 1960s image behind, but also that her mesmerising, hard-as-nails performance in Ordinary People was not a one-off.


A welfare worker attempts to bring down a woman she believes is running an illegal adoption racket, but finds her efforts constantly thwarted by her adversary's society connections. Fact-based drama, starring Lea Thompson and Mary Tyler Moore.
