Compared with today, 1950s Britain could have been a different planet. Emotionally and sexually repressed, it was a class-divided country where personal problems remained private and a nice cuppa was often seen as the answer to all evils. This poignant and powerful drama meticulously recreates this post-war era through the experiences of working class Vera Drake, a benevolent though naive cleaning lady who secretly performs backstreet abortions for desperate girls. She sees herself as simply lending a helping hand - but when one of her clients almost dies, Vera's illegal actions tragically backfire.
An intense, hard-edged portrait of a man lost within his own mind, featuring an incredible central performance from Ralph Fiennes.
