Storyline

15-year old Davey Younger is sent to Glenavon care home for boys in Wales where he is subjected to sexual abuse by two of the staff and a visiting magistrate. The adult Davey, married with children, is approached by television journalist Elaine Hughes after sympathetic councillor Tony Collins has ordered an investigation into the historic abuse but Davey is reluctant to dig up the past that he has kept from his wife. Arrests are made but Davey is convinced that any allegations against the magistrate will not be believed. However he agrees to testify against him in court, though the result is not to everybody's advantage. Written by don @ minifie-1

CARE (DIDIER BECU)
8 March 2004 | by Didier-BecuSee all my reviews

Will there be please coming an end to hyping movies that are dealing about social conflicts or other human disasters? Okay "Care" is about childabuse, "Care" is about perverts misusing boys in a school and how disgusting it might be, if it's a movie with a poor script and made with bad playing actors then it stays a bad movie. "Care" is a movie that could have been, but is it because it was a tvmovie I don't know but everything seemed so limited that it comes over as some cheap movie that will be seen by some housewifes and fathers who decide not to go to bed. There are so many unanswered things in this movie...the relation with his mother for instance or the death of some abused boy from which we know nothing more. "Care" should have been much much better.
