Vera Drake 12A

Part of Mike Leigh in Conversation. United Kingdom, 2004, Mike Leigh, 125m.

London, 1950: Vera Drake lives with her husband Stan and their grown-up children, Sid and Ethel. They are not rich, but they are a happy, close family. Vera cleans houses, Stan is a mechanic in his brother's garage, Sid works for a tailor and Ethel works in a factory testing lightbulbs.

When one of these girls is rushed to hospital following an abortion, the police investigation leads to Vera and her world comes crashing in on her.
