'Dear Nobody' is a TV-miniseries drama directed by Juliet May in 1997. It's based on a novel with the same title. It deals with the problems of a girl aged 18, Helen performed by Katie Blake and her boyfriend, Chris played by Sean Maguire. Helen is pregnant and is not sure if she should keep the baby or have an abortion, because she is afraid of telling it to her mother and of ruining her life. Chris and Helen have to solve a lot of problems. But finally she decides to keep the baby and tries to manage the situation. The subject is interesting and seems to be realistic, but the cast and the crew have not exactly covered themselves with glory. The actors do not appear to be experienced, their mimic art seems superficial and it sounds like laughter when someone cries. I think the whole movie gets by with one song, maybe they are proud of it because they worked economicallyactually they were not only very "economical" there but I think that made the film very, very boring. In my opinion, if you have read the book, you should by no means watch this film. Even if the structure is arranged quite well, some very important aspects of the book are not even mentioned and the characters do not fit at all.
Finally I have to recommend that nobody should waste his/her time and watch this film. It is really boring and dreadful. I am sorry but no. Just no.
