Movie Info

Filmed in Britain, Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit stars Charlotte Coleman as a champing-at-the-bit teenager named Jess.

Audience Reviews for Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit

Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit is British TV at it's best. It's not been bettered since it first aired in 1989. Charlotte Coleman and Geraldine McEwan are brilliant as Mother and Daughter, in this tragic but also very touching comedy based on the novel by Jeanette Winterson. It's so sad that Charlotte Coleman died at such an early age, it's also sad how overlooked this mini-series/TV movie is. I urge people to see it, it's out on DVD!
