Abortion is illegal in France in 1963, and when bright young student Anne gets pregnant, she sees her opportunities to finish her studies and excel slipping from her grasp. As her final exams approach and her social life begins to fade, Anne's pregnancy progresses, forcing her to confront the shame and pain of an abortion, even if she must risk prison to do so.
French filmmaker Audrey Diwan directed and co-wrote the screen adaptation of Annie Ernaux's novel which looks back on the author's experience with abortion. Described as a "tough but rewarding watch", the film won the Golden Lion at the 78th Venice International Film Festival last year.
