From the best British documentary filmmaker of her generation comes this fascinating insight into the workings of the Mulberry Bush school that caters for troubled kids. Where emotional trauma and violent confrontation are never far away and the staff appear positively saintly. Asking vital questions about how best to deal with difficult children Longinotto, offers no pat answers or facile analysis, just observation of good people helping damaged kids. This is food for thought for anyone who thinks that poor parenting is a crucial social issue. Quietly positive.
