Made in Dagenham gamely depicts an interesting bit of history, but its real message is a matter of principle.
A spirited look -- well written, beautifully acted, full of uplift -- at lovably cheeky heroines on the march for a little respect.
It's a nice breather indeed.
It's an entertaining, humanist slice of social history scored with a soundtrack of upbeat late-'60s radio hits.
The likable little British import "Made in Dagenham" delivers an overdue valentine to some unsung heroines of the people-power revolution.
The real women of the Ford plant - seen briefly and tantalizing in footage played over the credits - surely could tell a more compelling story than this agreeable but overfamiliar effort; perhaps some documentarian, some day, will give them the chance.
Although Made in Dagenham is far from perfect and has a particular fondness for those impromptu speeches which turn out to be stirringly spot-on, it is so warm-hearted and affectionate it wouldn't be right to take against it.
Made in Dagenham is exuberant, touching, fashionable, invigorating and simply absolutely delightful to watch.
Unfortunately, the story is just so predictable that there's little dramatic tension to speak of.
A cheeky and uplifting "inspired-by-a-true-story" that overcomes its predictability with sparkling performances, a dash of wit and a lot of heart
full review at Movies for the Masses
All the anger has been wrapped up in a tea cozy.
An us-against-them tale of heroism that manages not to trip over it's own feet as the underpaid women at a Ford Automotive plant in England strike for better wages. By the numbers, the film fails to mention that while the ladies win (spoiler alert! ... oh, they made a movie out of it! Duh) the battle, they lose the war as Ford eventually takes its ball elsewhere to play.
An inspirational story for women's rights and good on them, however this movie is just boring. Bob Hoskins is brilliant and the cast is brilliant but not my sort of movie!
An entertaining, but curiously, slightly frustratingly middle class image of working class struggle.
Solid cast - Sally Hawkins and Bob Hoskins - but this film's beginning is brutally boring, and in all it's too didactic, moving slowly and belabouring most plot points. The subject matter is important, and it's not without it's moments, but the dialogue is clunky and poorly written, veering dangerously close to Movie of the Week territory by times.
