Oranges and Sunshine / Poster and Trailer

A poster and trailer for Jim Loach's - he's the son of Ken - UK/Australian co-production, Oranges and Sunshine. The film is released here in April and stars Emily Watson, Hugo Weaving and David Wenham and tells the story of the forced relocations of children from England to Australia and Canada, a government policy that wasn't fully ceased until the 1960s. The trailer, scored oh-so-tearjerkily (?) to the music of Lisa Gerrard, basically scream "WATCH THIS MOVIE AND CRY!"

We'll wait and see.

This does look like it's fallen prey to all the worst vices of the socially conscious film. An obsessive detailing awful events to shake our heads at, a set of lovable victims to embrace and a set of caricatured authority figures to shake our fingers at.
