Mike Leigh, the writer/director who made the film about abortionist Vera Drake is a self-proclaimed feminist, and he talks about his dedication to fully-developed characters while promoting his new movie, Happy-Go-Lucky. "Though I see the world as a heterosexual male person, my job is to tell a story in a way that makes each character keep its complete integrity, no matter if it's a man or a woman," Leigh tells the AFP."As a film-maker, I feel I have to make good parts for women because there aren't many in the world, parts that are not just male fantasies."
