Abortion Film Sweeps British Film Awards

 LONDON (Reuters) - Mike Leigh's moving portrayal of a back-street abortionist in 1950s London swept the British Independent Film Awards late Tuesday, taking six awards, including Best Film and Best Director.
"Vera Drake" also snared the Best Actress award for Imelda Staunton and Best Actor for Phil Davis.

The film, which deals with a working class abortionist whose views are at odds with the society around her, found similar success at the Venice Film Festival, where it took the Golden Lion for Best Film and Best Actress for Staunton.
The London ceremony was attended by a raft of stars, including Christian Slater, Kelly Brook, Billy Zane and Gillian Anderson.

The British Independent Film Awards were established in 1998.

  Whatever we might think of the subject of the film, Mike Leigh is an extremely interesting and talented British director

For those who like that sort of thing, that is the sort of thing they like!-

I'm always struck by the presence of gay men at abortion meetings.  How does it involve them?

I'm always struck by the need of some people to resurrect five year old threads about a movie in order to discuss something unrelated to it.  Smiley

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth
