  • Description

Acclaimed period drama about a young woman trying to access abortive rights

This is the story of Anne, a young woman who decides to abort to finish her studies and escape the social constraints of a working-class family. France in 1963: a society that censures women’s desires. And sex in general. This simple but cruel story follows the itinerary of a woman who decides to go against the law. Anne has only a little time before her. Her exams are just around the corner, and her baby bump is growing fast.

★★★★ A stylish time capsule reaching into the present with unnerving clarity. Empire
★★★★ Happening is a visceral, confronting experience The Observer
★★★★ An atmospheric, gripping drama with a poignant contemporary relevance. Time Out
