What transpires when a daughter with black African features is born to a white Afrikaner racist and his wife in apartheid-era South Africa? A whole lotta trouble, as this relentlessly cloudy South Africa-UK production demonstrates. Actors Sophie Okonedo, Sam Neill, and Alive Kruge turn in vivid, tense perfs as the unhappy family, but the story is too melodramatic to be anything but true (it was based on a real-life case). Dad insists young Sandra is white, her white classmates shun her, Mom grieves, and Sandra is forced to go her way alone as a “colored.” Directed in TV style by Anthony Fabian from a screenplay he wrote with three other writers (107 min.).
