Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit Details


Filmed in Britain, Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit stars [[Performer~P121155~Charlotte Coleman~charlottecoleman]] as a champing-at-the-bit teenager named Jess. The girl's domineering mother ([[Performer~P47344~Geraldine McEwan~geraldinemcewan]]), a religious fanatic, wants Jess to become a missionary; to that end, she refuses to allow the girl any friends her own age. Jess' father has nothing to say in the matter--indeed, he has had nothing to say to anyone for years. The girl's growing awareness of her own sexuality (depicted in steamy detail) flies in the face of her mother's carefully orchestrated plans. Funny in a dark sort of way, Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit was first seen in America over the Arts and Entertainment cable service in late 1990. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
