Crissy Rock renders the best, toughest performance by an actress this year in Loach's relentlessly grim, alomost too painful to watch drama about a woman who loses six of her children to the state's social service authorities--not for the squeamish.

Not to best of Loach. Forgettable once you have viewed it.

Ladybird, Ladybird was a story about a British woman who struggled to keep her children. Ken Loach's movies were always good and they dealt with sad and hard subjects. She has had an unhappy childhood, has been beaten and mistreated by all the men in her life and social services had taken away her children from her, because they were convinced that she wasn't able to take care of them. The movie felt more like a documentary, filmed by a camera crew that just happened to be in the right place at the right time to film this touching and realistic drama.You really don't need any spectacular scenes to make a great movie. A powerful, humbling and touching story like this one was more than enough.
