'70s slice of social drama

THE 14 is a long-forgotten slice of social drama that looks at the fortunes of no less than fourteen siblings who are required to fend for themselves when their mother (played by UK TV staple June Brown, aka Dot Cotton from EASTENDERS) is taken ill. The film has an interesting historical backdrop with the clearing of the slums taking a part, but the most interesting part of it lies in the efforts of the social services to deal with the situation. It's based on part on a true story.

I didn't think much of this film, I found it quite boring in fact. The main kids are quite annoying and only endearing in a couple of scenes. Jack Wild is fine, however. I think one of the problems is that I watched CAPTAIN FANTASTIC the day before and by comparison that film is very funny, interesting, and features likable characters. This one has an interesting situation and setting but lacks humour, warmth, and feels just a bit dull and overly chaotic.

Deserves better then the present rating!

How I found this movie was through my appreciation of the Bee Gees music. I had heard that their song Melody Fair was the theme song in the movie Melody. From there I looked up Mark Lester and Jack Wild, who were both in the movie Melody, and I found this movie listed on IMDb. I found it on YouTube and finished watching it a few moments ago! I think this movie was touching and the acting was quite convincing even from the kids who were truly acting like troubled, undisciplined kids, rather than actors with lines. This movie definitely interested me enough to where I would love to find out what happened to the kids.

Blood is thicker than water; family comes first

For a relatively obscure film this film features powerful performances. There is no doubting the talent of Jack Wild but it is the supporting cast which carries the movie. And June Brown's performance as the single mother who becomes a martyr is galvanizing. Do you love your mother? If you can find this film I highly recommend you see it. An underrated gem by David Hemmings.
