    A really thought provoking and interesting film. Groups in Key Stage 4 were all engaged by it and found it depressing how a life can change so quickly. Girls were particularly interesting as they could see how awful Leanne's life was because of one mistake. There were definitely parallels between that environment and that which our pupils live in which made it very real.

    It was good and realistic, sort of, in Wales. It involves racism. And that is a point we need to tackle in Britain. I feel sorry for the baby.
