Watson, Wenham & Weaving Enjoy Oranges and Sunshine


Variety reports that Emily Watson, David Wenham and Hugo Weaving will star in Jim Loach’s directorial debut Oranges and Sunshine.

The film recounts the true story of Margaret Humphreys, a British social worker who in 1987 discovered that the government had secretly deported thousands of children in child protective services from the U.K. to Australia.

Rona Munro wrote the screenplay, which is an adaptation of Humphreys’ book “Empty Cradles.”
