Oranges and Sunshine (2010)
Director Jim Loach
Oranges and Sunshine tells the story of Margaret Humphreys, a social worker from Nottingham, who uncovered one of the most significant social scandals in recent times: the organized deportation of children from the United Kingdom to Australia. Almost single-handedly, against overwhelming odds and with little regard for her own well-being, Margaret reunited thousands of families, brought authorities to account and worldwide attention to an extraordinary miscarriage of justice. - Rome International Film Festival 2010
Running Time 105m
Jim Loach (England, 1969) completed the BBC Directors training course after working as a Researcher / Producer and Director in the BBC Features Department. Over the next ten years, Jim, son of Ken Loach, worked as a television director on series such as: Hotel Babylon, Casualty, Shameless, Waterloo Road and Bad Girls. Oranges and Sunshine is Loach’s first feature.
- Watson is perfect as the upright, compassionate and fiercely determined champion of victims’ rights. Weaving has rarely been better than as the empty Jack, and Wenham brings a sharp edge as the prickly Len. - Alissa Simon / Variety
