Happening is an adaptation of Annie Ernaux’s eponymous novel, looking back on her experience with abortion when it was still illegal in France in the 1960s. A 2021 French drama directed by Audrey Diwan from a screenplay by Diwan and Marcia Romano.
In 1963 France, Anne, a bright young student, gets pregnant, seeing her opportunities to finish her studies and excel slipping away from her. As her final exams approach and her social life begins to fade, Anne’s pregnancy progresses, forcing her to confront the shame and pain of an abortion, even if she must risk prison to do so.
