France, 1963. Anne is a bright young student with a promising future ahead of her. But when she falls pregnant, she resolves to act even if she must risk prison to do so.

In Detail

With her final exams fast approaching and her belly growing Anne pursues an abortion and finds every door in her world closed to her. Potential prison time awaits those who are caught undergoing, executing or even enabling an abortion.

The film takes on the shape of a human thriller, with Anne’s options shutting down one by one. Deftly adapted by director Audrey Diwan from a novella, ‘Happening’ is a period piece, but it’s acted and shot with a shivery immediacy.

A triumph of immersive and emotion-filled storytelling.
