Jim Loach, the son of legendary director Ken Loach, has followed in his father's footsteps with his first feature film "Oranges And Sunshine." Aged 41, Jim has spent the last decade directing Brit TV, but his debut movie did a couple festival dates in the fall and now is being primed for the public.

Starring Hugo Weaving and Emily Watson, the film touches upon similar social consciousness territory as his father's oeuvre, telling the story "of the former Nottinghamshire social worker [Margaret Humphreys, played by Emily Watson] who, in the 1980s, discovered the scandal of 130,000 children in care deported to Australia and other Commonwealth countries" where they faced physical and sexual abuse. The film was penned by Rona Munro (who wrote Ken Loach's "Ladybird Ladybird") and is based off Margaret Humphreys' book "Empty Cradles."

A trailer has now been unveiled over at Guardian and its certainly not left wanting in emotion but that said, it actually looks like its achieved a heart-rending tenor without taking it over the top. We're curious. The film will hit the U.K. on April 1st but there's not stateside release scheduled just yet. Check it out below. [embed via RopeOfSilicon]
