Actress Samantha Morton's directorial debut feature THE UNLOVED stars acclaimed actors Robert Carlyle (28 WEEKS LATER) and Susan Lynch (ELIZABETH: THE GOLDEN AGE) alongside the two young leads Molly Windsor as Lucy and Lauren Socha as Lauren, who were cast through a series of open auditions held across Nottingham schools, drama groups and at The Television Workshop (where Morton herself attended).
A powerful drama about growing up in a children's home. Working with screenwriter Tony Grisoni (RED RIDING), Morton has created a script that gives an honest and intimate child's-eye view of the care system in the UK. Filmed in Morton's hometown of Nottingham from where the two young leads - Molly Windsor and Lauren Socha live.
