Norma Rae Reviews

Kevin Carr
7M Pictures

At its heart, Norma Rae isn't a button-wearing union film as much as it is a character study of one woman who is pushed to the point of doing something spectacular.

The closure is consistent and satisfying, standing in opposition to conventional Hollywood happy endings: Norma Rae and Jewish labor leader part as equals, with a respectful handshake rather than embrace or kiss; both have benefited from the friendship

Nicely performed by a strong cast, especially Field and Leibman, it's often mawkishly soft, but surprisingly touching.
