Icon Home Entertainment presents Jim Loach's feature film debut, the critically acclaimed Oranges and Sunshine, released on DVD on 25th July 2011. This powerful and deeply-moving film depicts the real-life story of a woman's courage to expose a tragic scandal that the British government kept a secret for decades.

Based on the best-selling book Empty Cradles by Margaret Humphreys CBE, Oranges and Sunshine stars Oscar-nominee Emily Watson (Breaking the Waves, Gosford Park), David Wenham (The Lord of the Rings), Molly Windsor (The Unloved) and Hugo Weaving (The Matrix).

Oranges and Sunshine tells the story of Margaret Humphreys (Emily Watson), a social worker from Nottingham, who uncovered one of the most significant social scandals of recent times; the mass deportation of children from the United Kingdom to Australia.

Single-handedly and against overwhelming odds, Margaret reunited thousands of families and drew worldwide attention to an extraordinary miscarriage of justice. Children as young as four had been told that their parents were dead and sent to children's homes on the other side of the world, where many were subjected to appalling abuse. These forgotten children were promised Oranges and Sunshine but they got hard labour and life in institutions.

The powerful narrative provoked conversations that have resulted in official apologies from the Australian and British government. In bringing this unbelievable tale to screen in such a subtle and sensitive manner, Jim Loach follows in his father's footsteps and successfully cement's his role as a feature film director.
