Who was the last really notable professional woman you can recall in a movie?
Hugo Weaving so often plays bad guys and badasses, but Oranges and Sunshine reminds me how gentle and vulnerable he can be onscreen…
Hilarious true story. You’ll love this. In the 20th century, up until as late as 1970, thousands and thousands and thousands of British children were forcibly deported to Australia, where they were herded into group homes or other institutions, treated like slave labor, and subject to regular physical and sexual abuse on top of the emotional abuse of being ripped from their families, their homes, their country.
Great cast: Emily Watson, David Wenham, Hugo Weaving. Anything to make yet another real-life sad tale go down easier.
