Sleepers - the abuse in that film stuck with me for an awfully long time.
The book is also an excellent (but harrowing) read.

Eastern Promises, British - 2007. It's a thriller about se trafficking in London.

is Get Carter the one where Michael Caine finds his niece has been pushed in to porn? something with him anyway.

This is England? It's a TV series but a sequel to the 2006 film of the same name. I haven't seen the film so there might be something in that that's useful to you too.

Care was a TV movie about abuse in a children's home. I think all the teens were boys. It is British.

I think I need to focus on British film making
However can't find much, was thinking of a time line of changing representations

So far all I can think of is
Rita bob and sue too
Fish tank

Anything before or in between thank anyone can point me to?

Maybe I could contrast both movies and see the different representation

MrsSham Mon 18-Mar-13 19:18:28

Fish tank yes that is the film.

Lolita?

Fish Tank! Not Fishbowl.

justabigdisco Mon 18-Mar-13 19:14:13

Do you mean Fishbowl?

Hi I need some films to critique that portrait the sexual victimisation of teens. I remember one about a girl who's mum is an alcoholic and her mums partner rapes her on the sofa, and it is portrait as consented any one know the name? I never watched the whole film and can't remember what its called.

Any other similar films anyone know about?
