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.

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.
