Dame Judi Dench has such an aura about her that it is, at times, a bit difficult to believe her as a lower-middle class Irish woman but this story is still worth telling as a reminder of how a culture's mores change with time. This movie adaptation focuses on the narrow family and social choices for a teen with an unexpected pregnancy in the early 1950s and the power of a minority to control information around that pregnancy. Creative license makes this drama more compelling but it is based on a true story.
