Movie: Man in an Orange Shirt
From best-selling British novelist Patrick Gale, “Man in an Orange Shirt” tells two powerful love stories set 60 years apart, linked by family and a painting with a secret that echoes back through generations. The film explores a forbidden relationship made impossible by societal pressures during WW II, and vividly contrasts it with a present-day romance that is nearly derailed by the consequences of the 1940’s tale with which it is deeply intertwined. This is a tender, powerful film sure to spark conversation about outdated attitudes and equal rights.
