Works as both deep focus on a critical historical moment, and a more intimate and sorrowful tale about growing up female in America.

Though tough and heavy-handed at times, North Country is engaging -- not one of those films about an important subject matter that you feel you should watch.
| Original Score: 3/4

...there's little doubt that the movie would not come off even remotely as well as it ultimately does were it not for the effectiveness of the cast.

The narrative may not be exact in its details..., but it is undoubtedly true to the spirit of the real events.

Enjoyable drama that's impressively shot and features a strong cast but is ultimately hampered by a fatal weakness for courtroom clichés.

With "North Country," Theron and Caro strongly suggest that "Monster" and "Whale Rider" weren't one-offs.

The one-sided, formulaic storyline and laughable courtroom histrionics are eclipsed by peripheral material involving Theron's brooding teenage son and penitent father.

North Country centers on Theron's work, and she is truly wonderful start to finish.

Theron anchors the film with a complex performance that balances Josey's strength and vulnerability, and successfully portrays her as a reluctant working-class hero.

[Theron] is the wounded heart of the film and helps carry some of the less successful material of the film on her shoulders.

Sometimes a story is so timeless that it deserves to be told again. Such a story is "North Country," a fictionalized account of events in the 1980s at a mine in the Midwest.

For all its issue-related fist pumping, the movie is suffused with the tender and heartwarming story of a man coming to terms with the love for his only daughter.
