I have been anticipating watching this movie for a month and it was beyond my expectations of a lifetime movie. The acting was superior (Gilpin, Polo and the child actors). This movie follows two women (Gilpin and Polo) on their journey to help children around the world. Through their journey of orphans and abused children they stumble across Jacob, an severely abused child,whose story makes the movie touching and meaningful. The movie can get a little confusing at times because they do switch from one decade to another, as long as you're paying attention you'll understand what is going on. The movie was a great awakening of what some children are living through and that people can really change the world for others.

The Synopsis for For the Love of a Child (2006) 1080p
In 1959, support from US troops based in Asia and later from the States enables two actresses to start a charity for mixed-race 'orphans' who are locally neglected as outcasts. Thus originates Childhelp, which later runs multi-disciplinary centers for abused or neglected children in the States. Among them is bright Jacob Fletcher, whose stepfather, a lawyer, terrorized him into utter trauma and reclaims him shortly after 10 months in jail. Jacob's peers have distressing stories of their own, but competent, devoted staff helps most of them decisively on the former farm, using animal therapy.

I have rarely seen ANYTHING that moved me as much as "For the Love of a Child." Based on the true story of Childhelp International and the two women who founded it, this film brought tears to my eyes (and I rarely cry at movies -- show me a "tear-jerker" with an overannuated actress dying of a fatal disease to the accompaniment of treacly string music and my eyes remain dry every time). This film works on every level: a sensitive script by Duane Poole that showcased both the depths of depravity and the heights of nobility that we humans are capable of; quiet, understated direction by Douglas Barr, who trusted the story to tell itself without gimmicks or visual trickery; and acting by a remarkable ensemble cast who vividly brought these people to life. David McNally's performance as the abusive stepdad is one of the most intense portraits of controlled evil I've seen on screen, but the real "star" of this movie is Matthew Knight, the remarkable child actor who played Jacob and brought all his moods and emotions to vivid life. One wonders how Douglas Barr got this performance out of him, and in particular just how much the director told him about abused children generally and the character specifically -- it's a marvelous acting job but I can't help but wonder whether the boy might be scarred just from having to act these scenes. The film is a tribute to the human spirit that a group such as Childhelp can exist -- even though it's also an all too accurate portrayal of the dark side of our natures that requires a group like Childhelp to exist in the first place. The editing between the current story and the flashbacks in the first hour occasionally gets confusing, but that's the only negative thing I'd have to say about this great film.
Nothing really to get excited about in this movie. The movie retells the true story of Childhelp International and the two women who founded it. Jumping from the past to the present we are shown how the foundation came to be and how it flourished since then.
The origins aren't really too heartwarming and you can't help to think that it lacked real heart to it. Maybe a different form of presenting the motivations of the women who created Chlidhelp International would be in order.
The main segment of the film however can at times pack a wallop. It shows abused children, that are taken in by Childhelp, with various horror stories behind all of them. The organisation gives them a chance to find peace and in the future maybe hope for a better living. It's shocking in as much as all of it seems to be based on real life stories. The storytelling however is lacking and weak with the acting below par.
Nothing really to get excited about, but it is a decent watch and definitely not a waste of time.
