Sometimes I have to give myself a shake to get out of the house on a cold evening, especially when Downton Abbey and Homeland are on television.
But I was glad I made the effort last night as this Canadian film about four young girls and their lives in the care system was gruelling but incredibly powerful, with wonderful performances from the young actresses - especially the little girl, eight in real life, who plays the part of an anxious six year old shuttled from one foster home to another.
I don't suppose this will get wide distribution - but if it's on near you, it's well worth seeing.

I haven't heard a thing about this one, Mary, but I will be sure to keep an eye out for it. At my house we're excited about Skyfall opening in Canada this Friday! We couldn't get tickets for love nor money while in London.

This was part of Quebec cinema showcase, Darlene. Don't think it's been released yet.
Friend tried to go to Skyfall at the weekend and said there was still a queue.
