From the director of Calendar Girls comes this extraordinary story based on true events. Dagenham, England, 1968. At the town's local Ford automobile plant, Rita O'Grady is one of only 187 women in a workforce of 55,000 men. Facing overwhelming opposition in this man's world, Rita rallies her female co-workers to fight for equal pay - a stand that defies the corporate status quo, threatens her marriage, and ultimately exacts a tragic toll. But with the support of the shop's steward and the government's Employment Secretary, the women become the sensation of the nation - and the catalyst for a profound turning point in time.

It doesn't really have much of an intro, you're sort of thrust straight in and it took a little while to gauge the characters and find out what was going on, however, once it developed it was an easy watch, and the characters had good depth. I found myself rooting for the women and hoping it all went their way!! It wasn't too predictable, but saying that I'm only 20 so I wasn't around when this was going on so I'm not sure if that's relevant!
I also really liked the fact they used (I assume!!) original film clips from the time, incorporated throughout the film brilliantly.
To conclude it was a 'nice' easy film to watch which was funny throughout. I would definitely recommend it.
It's a shame it wasn't out long at the cinema!!!
I am not surprised that it was not a hit in the USA. I'd guess it would frighten the wits out of anti-union middle America.
It is an enjoyable, if not great, film.
The period is visually recreated very effectively (I can remember the time and the events well). There is, perhaps, a little air-brushing, just as often happens in films which are clearly using treasured modern examples of what have become classic cars, for instance (Cortinas, Corsairs and Anglias among them, in this case). The drama is well paced. Throughout, the actors easily gain our sympathy, and that is a major element in the success of the film.
But it's not perfect.Read more ›
