SummaryAdd a Summary
If you far prefer glossy, light hearted entertainment, give this film a skip. The based-on-truth content dictates the mood : thousands of British children from struggling/single parent homes were deported to Australia following WW II. Only labour and heartbreak awaited them -- not "oranges & sunshine." Emily Watson is a serious, door social worker who uncovers the story by interviewing the now-grown children, and goes public with it. Watson is a marvel in the part, and the story is important -- but perhaps best saved for mid-July viewing when Stratford scenery is also less grey.
