International Film Series Screening of Happening

The past is a template for the present in Audrey Diwan's eloquent, heart-wrenching story, based on a memoir by Annie Ernaux, winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature. Anne, an ordinary college student, (touchingly played by Anamaria Vartolomei) is desperate to get an abortion in France in 1963. Knowing that motherhood would destroy her future, Anne unhesitatingly seeks out illegal help, in detailed scenes that expose the hypocrisy of the medical establishment and the callousness of society at large. Diwan's measured approach reflects the heroine's quiet determination, avoiding preachiness and melodrama even as Anne races against time toward a suspenseful ending.
