Following in the footsteps of his director father Ken, first-time feature director Jim Loach here delivers a powerful social issue drama. It tells the true story of Nottingham social worker Margaret Humphreys and her discovery of an unjust government practice of the last century – the forced migration of children from the UK to Australia. Slow and restrained, the film holds back on emotional punch - but the facts alone are harrowing. Many of these children were wrongly told their parents were dead, and were promised oranges and sunshine only to find nothing but harsh treatment.
A rich, intriguing, surprisingly funny film about Australia's Aboriginal population and about storytelling itself.
