Aro Recommended Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit


UK 1989, 165 minutes
Dir. Beeban Kidron
Rating: [M]
Genres: Drama / Lesbian

Topics: Religion.


Aroview: Landmark adaptation of Jeanette Winterson's novel about a young girl raised in the cult-like surrounds of a strict evangelist household in the 1970s, who finds some escape when she goes to school, but also faces severe consequences for her lesbian impulses and teenage attitudes.

With a tone that veers between black comedy, horror, personal drama and surreal dream touches, this is an intense and unforgettable trip, with an unusual and touching performance from Charlotte Coleman in the lead.
