Synopsis

Abortionist Vera Drake finds her beliefs and practices clash with the mores of 1950s Britain—a conflict that leads to tragedy for her family.

MUBI's take

Mike Leigh’s dedicated troupe of performers (including Happy Go Lucky stars Sally Hawkins and Eddie Marsan) are led by a spectacular Imelda Staunton in this compelling family drama: an astute and intelligent 1950s political period piece. Winner of the Golden Lion at the Venice Film Festival.
