This compelling drama, based on the autobiographical novel by Annie Ernaux, may be set five decades in the past but its themes are particularly relevant in the light of recent events in the US. 

France, 1963, Anne is a bright young student with a promising future ahead of her. But when she falls pregnant, she sees the opportunity to finish her studies and escape the constraints of her social background disappearing. With her final exams fast approaching and her pregnancy progressing, Anne resolves to act, even if she has to confront shame and pain, even if she must risk prison to do so. Winner of the Golden Lion at Venice Film Festival and now BAFTA nominated, Happening puts a personal face on an impossibly difficult choice.
