'Ladybird Ladybird' is based on a true story of a woman's seemingly endless fight with Social Services over the care of her children.
The movie's main character is Maggie (Crissy Rock), a single parent born and bread in Liverpool with four children, all of whom were to different fathers. Hurt and troubled Maggie has a history of getting into bad relationships. Her ex-boyfriend Simon (played by Ray Winstone) violently abused her causing her to run away; but the social services, concerned about her children after a home fire occurred when Maggie was away at the pub, resulting in one of the children becoming seriously injured, took them away from her and put them into foster care. When Maggie meets a gentle refugee called Jorge (Vladimir Vega), she feels that she might finally have a chance of happiness, the couple try for a baby, only for Maggie to be devastated by the Social Services once more.
This is a really touching film, a harrowing story of one woman's fight to win back her babies despite the odds. I regard this as one of Ken Loach's greatest movies and as for Crissy Rock's award-winning acting in it, I think Ken summed it up the best when he said: "I cannot think of anyone I have worked with who shines more brightly than Crissy Rock."
albeit emotionally raw. I thought the acting was superb & I give5 stars..
