Since I kept hearing good things about this movie, I was really eager to check it out. Since it was directed by Mike Leigh, one of the most heralded British directors, I was pretty sure I was in good hands. And, I wasn't disappointed. Indeed, it is a striking study about abortion in 1950s England with a fascinating central character, Vera Drake. Until then, Imelda Staunton was known for playing su... read more

A very good movie

“Since I kept hearing good things about this movie, I was really eager to check it out. Since it was directed by Mike Leigh, one of the most heralded British directors, I was pretty sure I was in good hands. And, I wasn't disappointed. Indeed, it is a striking study about abortion in 1950s England with a fascinating central character, Vera Drake. Until then, Imelda Staunton was known for playing supporting characters but I never suspect she could blow me away like this. It was a really terrific performance and, in my opinion, she deserved the Best Leading Actress Academy Award which was eventually won by Hilary Swank for her performance in 'Million Dollar Baby'. The most fascinating thing is that even if you are pro-choice like me, you're never sure if you should be supportive with Vera Dra” read more

" Vera Drake is an elderly, kind-hearted woman who works hard to support her relatives and, according to herself, helps girls in trouble. She performs abortions to girls without knowing that her friend secretly charges a high price for the operations. Characters of Mike Leigh's films are rarely black and white. For example, Vera Drake is a honest person who clearly believes she's doing the right thing, but she's also naive and in a way irresponsible which ends up costing a lot to her and people "
