Happeningwon the top prize at last year's Venice Film Festival. [It's] adapted from the 2000 book by the French writer Annie Ernaux, detailing the experience of her own abortion in 1963.And if 1960s France seems like a faraway time and place, Happeningcomes entwined with a warning: the country it's showing us is likely to be the United States of Tomorrow. —TIME Magazine
