"Happening" starring Anamaria Vertolomei

May 6, 2022


Happening (L’évènement) by Audrey Diwan is now screening in theaters in the US!

Set in 1960s France, but feeling acutely timely, Happening follows Anne (Anamaria Vartolomei), a bright young student with a promising future. But when she becomes pregnant, she sees the opportunity to finish her studies and escape the constraints of her background slipping away. With her final exams fast approaching and her belly growing, Anne resolves to act, even if she has to confront shame and pain—even if she must risk prison to do so. With Sandrine Bonnaire.

“Harrowing, urgent and heroic. It will be meaningful to anyone who cares about personal freedoms.”–David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter
