Family Rescue

Family Rescue

Graeme Campbell (1997)

15 Certificate


Our Score
The presence of the ever-dependable George C Scott lifts this made-for-TV drama. Rachael Leigh Cook is Scott's granddaughter, who had a child when she was raped at 15 by her mother's (Ally Sheedy) boyfriend. In one of those mind-boggling twists, the courts inexplicably award the custody of the child to his natural father. Scott comes to the rescue, absconding with the child. Up-and-coming talent Cook shows why she's an actress to watch, while the Oscar-winning Scott is, as ever, eminently watchable.


A teenager is raped and becomes pregnant by her mother's boyfriend - but to her horror, the court grants him custody of the child. Drama, starring George C Scott, Rachael Leigh Cook, Dom Diamont and Ally Sheedy.
