Film What’s On

Saturday, 2.55pm, 9.55pm, Sky Cinema Premiere In these post-Roe v Wade times, here’s a sharp reminder of what it was like in the 60s before the abortion ruling came into effect. Elizabeth Banks plays Joy, a lawyer’s wife and mother of a 15-year-old girl. When her second pregnancy places her in a life-threatening situation and the hospital refuses a termination, she calls a helpline that provides illegal abortions. Late to the cause of women’s liberation, Joy is drawn into their necessary but morally fraught work in a film from Phyllis Nagy that retains optimistic top notes despite the injustice.
