Trailer for Drama ‘Oranges and Sunshine’ Isn’t All Sunshine and Rainbows

In Oranges and Sunshine, Emily Watson brings her Oscar-nominee-worthy acting to a leading role that sees her investigating a decades-old crime perpetrated en masse by a religious order. That crime? The conning and subsequent deportation of thousands of children to work camps in Australia. What’s most harrowing about the story is that it’s true.

Watson plays Margaret Humphreys, the social worker who uncovered the scandal, shined a light on it, and worked to reunite now-adult children with their families.

She’s joined by Hugo Weaving and David Wenham, and the trailer looks absolutely gripping:

This is the first feature film for Jim Loach – the son of famed director Ken Loach.
