Seeing Red

1999, 120 minutes

Moving, award winning drama.

The extraordinary true story of Coral Atkins--the '70s star who became a children's crusader. Sarah Lancashire stars as Coral Atkins, the ultimate '70s party girl and star of stage and screen, in this touching real-life drama. Beautiful and talented, Coral Atkins had fame, fortune and a life of luxury. One day, while appearing at a charity event, she witnessed the distress of a young child in foster care, and her life changed forever. Despite furious battles with authorities, and while pursuing a hectic career as the star of Family At War, Coral Atkins revolutionized the fostering system. Her determination to help children whom the system had failed led her to buy a rambling country house, which she transformed into the home where many children experience real affection for the first time. Highly disturbed and abused children found themselves in the often unruly, but never dull world of Coral Atkins. Hers is not only an exceptional story, but also a penetrating indictment of the social services.
