Description

"It's hard to think of a film more necessary in the current moment."
–Little White Lies
 

 
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. Anne resolves to act, even if she has to confront shame and pain, even if she must risk prison to do so. Audrey Diwan's remarkable second feature is an impassioned adaptation of Annie Ernaux's eponymous novel.
 
"More than a biopic or period-piece, this is a stylish time capsule reaching into the present with unnerving clarity."
–Empire
 
"a slice of clear-eyed French social-realism that will be meaningful to anyone who cares about personal freedoms."
–Hollywood Reporter
