This adaptation of Annie Ernaux’s acclaimed novel won the prestigious Golden Lion at Venice International Film Festival. It tells of Anne, a student in a provincial French college, who discovers she’s pregnant as her final exams approach. At the cusp of her dreams of university life, she considers a termination - but this is 1963, where abortion is illegal and sex is rarely discussed. Early critical praise for the film - described by Deadline as “a bravura piece of filmmaking” - has been universal.
