An adaptation of Annie Ernaux's memoir: a promising college student grapples with seeking an abortion when it was still illegal in France in 1963. Anamaria Vartolomei stars in the title role; Audrey Diwan directs. (Rated R)
A must see, especially for those who want to make this tough decision for others.
"With clear-eyed poise, the director Audrey Diwan captures the wrenching loneliness that can come with terminating an unwanted pregnancy -- and how judgment of such a choice can be even more crushing than the possibility of breaking an unjust law." Shirley Li, The Atlantic
