Dustbin Baby is an adaptation of Jacqueline Wilson's best-selling novel about April, a young teen who was abandoned in a dustbin at birth and has grown up in a series of foster homes and children's institutions. After an argument with her current foster mum on her 14th birthday, April runs away and spends the day visiting people and places from her past, ultimately hoping she will find her real mother. The film sensitively deals with bullying, teenage depression and unwanted pregnancy, but Wilson's customary humour means it never feels overworthy or issue-led.
Low-budget, hilarious hit film about a smart, independent 16-year-old whose life changes when she finds she's pregnant by a boy at her school.
