RETURN
Mike Leigh directs this heartbreaking account of a meek housewife trying to help young women in society, not realizing what it will cost her. 'Vera Drake' is the well-deserved winner of 3 BAFTAs, including Best Actress and Best Director. London, 1950, Vera Drake (Imelda Staunton) lives with her husband (Phil Davies) and their grown-up children, Sid and Ethel. They are not rich, but they are a happy, close-knit 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. But selfless Vera has a sideline, which she keeps secret from all those around her. Without excepting payment she helps young women to end their unwanted pregnancies. ★★★★★ "This is Mike Leigh back on top form" - Rob Mackie, The Guardian
