HAPPENING

100 % on Rotten Tomatoes & winner of the Venice Film Festival Golden Lion

In Audrey Diwan's tense and quietly radical film, Anne, a bright young student in early 1960s France, discovers she's pregnant. The law, as the doctor who breaks the news tells her, "is unsparing."Anyone who helps her terminate the pregnancy will land in jail, as will she. 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
