Michael and Liam
A suicidal teen and an openly gay youth strike up an unlikely rapport in a foster home
Drama 1978 51 mins
A camp, openly gay teen and a sullen, suicidal youth strike up an unlikely friendship in a foster home in this affecting drama. Liam has been in and out of care throughout his life, never finding a home that wants the admittedly difficult Scouser, while Michael’s middle-class foster parents want him back, and are horrified by his new friendship. The ITV series Kids focused on different children in care each week, and refused to offer simple solutions. So it is with Michael and Liam - although the charm of their surprising rapport adds humour to the story, a sudden switch in mood in the last scenes shows that not all problems can be so easily solved.
