Oranges and Sunshine Trailer

Another powerful semi-political story about fighting for what's right. Our friends at RopeofSilicon recently found an official UK trailer at The Guardian for a film by director Ken Loach's son Jim titled Oranges and Sunshine, that's set mostly in Australia. From Variety's review, it's a "deeply moving study of emotionally scarred adults who were illegally deported as children to Australia from Britain in the 1940s and '50s." The cast includes: Emily Watson as the British social worker who brought that shameful secret to the world's attention in the late '80s, as well as Hugo Weaving, David Wenham and Tara Morice. Watch it below.

Watch the international trailer for Jim Loach's Oranges and Sunshine:

Tells the story of Margaret Humphreys, a social worker who uncovered one of the most significant social scandals in history: the organized deportation of children in care from the UK to Australia in the 1940s.

Oranges and Sunshine is directed by British filmmaker Jim Loach, son of acclaimed filmmaker Ken Loach, making his feature debut after working in television for years. The screenplay was written by Scottish writer Rona Munro (Aimee & Jaguar, Almost Adult). This premiered at the Pusan & Rome Film Festivals last year. It still doesn't have a US distributor as far as we know, but hits theaters in Australia and the UK this April.

This film looks amazing. Some really bad shit happened to those kids, used for cheap labour and members of the religious organisations who had them in their 'care' obviously had their grubby hands over them too.

this looks like it coulda been oscar worthy in a few categories. release date wasn't planned out well. then again, some people don't care about getting awards as much as putting out an amazing movie. which sends a message all by itself.
