Vlad Tepes asked me to call on the distributed intelligence of our readers to help him find something.
He’s looking for the original version of a made-for-TV movie called “My Dangerous Loverboy”. It was commissioned by a UK government agency in 2007 to serve as educational material to be used by schools and institutions. It concerned an underage girl whose much older “boyfriend” turns out to be a pimp who is grooming her for sex slavery.
The story on what happened to it is confusing. IMDB lists it with a 2009 release date. The Daily Mail says it was suppressed for seven years, until after the Rotherham scandal broke. Other articles say it was never suppressed at all.
Vlad tells me that the movie was remade in 2010, with all the “Asian” characters replaced with white guys. He’s looking for the original movie (digital file or DVD), which had at least some Pakistani actors. He says it appears to have been scrubbed from the Internet; he can’t find a copy anywhere.
If anyone has a copy of the ORIGINAL “My Dangerous Loverboy”, or knows where to find one, please leave a comment here or at Vlad’s place.
