MCC Fall 2012 International Film Series
"Oranges and Sunshine" (United Kingdom/Australia) – Oranges & 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 organised deportation of children in care from the United Kingdom to Australia where they were thought to be lost in the system forever. 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. Stars Emily Watson and Hugo Weaving. 100 mins. English. Rated R.
