Girl On Approval (1961)

Sheila’s 14. Her father abandoned her as a baby, her mum’s in jail and she’s stuck in a children’s home. Every family that’s tried to look after her has found her too difficult. Now Anne and John Howland want to foster Sheila. But if they can’t make a home for her, her future looks bleak…

Starring Oscar Nominated actress Rachel Roberts (This Sporting Life, O Lucky Man!) as Anne and
sensitively directed by Charles Frend (The Cruel Sea, Scott of the Antarctic) Girl on Approval is a major example of the British New Wave, a brilliant study of troubled lives.
