Our Score
An affecting and compassionate look at child abuse through the true story of a six-year-old girl and her special education teacher. The Americans do this kind of TV movie in two ways, as either embarrassingly mawkish or thoughtful and mature. Untamed Love is in the latter category, with good performances from Cathy Lee Crosby and Ashlee Lauren as the determined teacher and her hapless pupil respectively. This is sometimes hard to take, a movie that is definitely not for confirmed escapists, but one which rewards greatly as its delicate story unfolds.


A teacher who specialises in tutoring children with learning difficulties forms a close bond with a violent girl traumatised by years of physical and psychological abuse. Fact-based drama, starring Cathy Lee Crosby, Ashlee Lauren, John Getz and Richard Fancy.
