Oranges and Sunshine
Director Jim Loach
Starring Emily Watson, Aisling Loftus, Stuart Wolfenden
The real life story of Margaret Humphreys (Emily Watson), a social worker in 1980’s Nottingham who uncovers one of the most significant social scandals in recent times – the organised governmental deportation of children in care from the post-war UK to Australia. With little regard for her own well-being, Margaret almost single-handedly reunites thousands of families. Her actions against overwhelming odds brought the relevant authorities to account and, with worldwide attention, exposed an extraordinary miscarriage of justice.
