Oscar-nominated and Golden Globe winning British actress Samantha Morton has made her directorial debut with The Unloved, a powerful drama that gives an intimate child's eye view of life in a children's home. Colleen (aka Cécile Schott) provides the majority of the soundtrack to the film, most of which is taken from the Parisian's second album, The Golden Morning Breaks. The film, which stars Robert Carlyle and Susan Lynch, will be aired on UK's Channel 4 at 9pm on May 17 and there are plans to extend the screening to Europe and North America over the coming months.
More information on the film can be found in an interview Morton gave to The Guardian.
