Movie Info

Rita O'Grady (Sally Hawkins) works for the Ford Motor Co. plant in Dagenham, England. Despite performing the specialized task of sewing upholstery for car seats, women are classified as unskilled labor and paid much less than men. Encouraged by a sympathetic union representative, Rita agrees to bring the women's grievances to Ford. The meeting goes badly and, outraged by the company's lack of respect for them, Rita leads her colleagues to strike.

    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.

    Good, but it feels like it was put together on an assembly line.

    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.
