Le Anne of Tinsel And Tine85 - The film did spark a discussion on whether or not it would have been better for all concerned if after 4 years to just continue on with the lie. What might have been an interesting twist, is if Hannah had turned out to be an abusive parent and you later found out Lucy would have been much better off with Tom & Isabel.
