Vera Drake 2004

From Amazon: The brilliant writer-director Mike Leigh (Topsy-Turvy, Secrets and Lies, Naked) has crafted an utterly compelling movie about one of the most controversial of topics. An irrepressibly hopeful housecleaner in 1950s London named Vera Drake (Imelda Staunton, Antonia and Jane, Shakespeare in Love) mothers everyone around her, from her own family to helpless shut-ins and lonely men living in tiny, isolated apartments. None of these people know that Vera also helps young women get rid of unwanted pregnancies, until the police appear and tear her world apart. Vera Drake isn't just an inspired character...

Vera Drake Movie Review by Jesse (12/16/2006)

One of the best movies of 2004. Vera Drake is underrated because it doesn't have the explosions and nudity that other films do, so people tend to ignore these kind of films. It's absolutely terrific. There is no solid male role in this film, but the role of Vera Drake, played perfectly by Imelda Staunton, was the key...

Vera Drake Movie Review by Tony (3/31/2006)

"Vera Drake" staring Imelda Staunton is one of those movies that stays with you for a long time after you see it. One of those movies where you walk out of it and you are like "wow". A powerfully moving film that really sticks with you hours after you have seen it. It also features a blow away performance and Oscar...
