Her Way review – a sex-worker mum puts her life on the line

A sex worker, and proud of it, Marie (Call My Agent!’s Laure Calamy, excellent) has a support system of colleagues on the streets of Strasbourg, and a set of rules that keep her safe, in this impressive drama directed by Cécile Ducrocq. But when her sullen, adolescent son crashes out of catering college and into a downward spiral, Marie must break her own working code in order to buy the boy a last chance to make his way in life. She takes a risky job in a brothel across the border in Germany; meanwhile, mother-son relations become increasingly fractious.
