This is the soundtrack to the new film from the people who brought you the smash-hit Calendar Girls and follows in the footsteps of the feel-good music of the Full Monty. Bringing together some of the era's biggest hits, including tracks by Dusty Springfield, The Kinks, The Temptations, , Desmond Dekker and the brand new title track from Sandy Shaw the original `Dagenham Diva' specially written for her by Billy Bragg and David Arnold. The film is a bittersweet story of the female workers of Ford's car factory in Dagenham who, in 1968 took to the picket lines to ensure fair working rights for women. This soundtrack is truly integral to the movie. and provides the backdrop to some of the film's most poignant and dramatic moments.

The cast is quite sensational, with all the actors turning in wonderful perfomances. Sally Hawkins in the lead is absolutely amazing, and the supporting cast with Bob Hoskins, Rosamund Pike, Andrea Riseborough and the irrepressable Jaime Winstone in a hugely enjoyable role, and many others is equally great. The 60s are beautifully portrayed through well chosen period sets and costumes typical for the decade. Great detail is also paid to the social norms of the time and the way people interacted back then.
The DVD has some very nice extra features:
- English Subtitles
- Audio description for the visually impaired
- Director's commentary with Nigel Cole with optional subtitles for the commentary (really nice feature that)
- Behind the Scenes featurette
- Deleted Scenes
This is a story of an era that if youre under 40 years old you will not understand , but a great insight of how post WW2 world we lived in.
Women had done there bit in that war & now they were having there say once more... a great historic story recomended for anyone to watch & some good humour & banter in it too...
