Just blew me off ! Though it's fictitious and dramatized to make spice to the true events, it's impeccable.
Watch this if: You're passionate about women's rights and the personal journeys that bring about social justice.
Inspired by the story of Lois Jenson, a woman mine worker who filed the first class-action sexual harassment lawsuit in the U.S., North Country is a moving depiction of struggle and courage in the face of impossible odds. Charlize Theron is phenomenal as lead character Josey, while Frances McDormand is brilliant as her no-nonsense friend and fellow worker. To top off this badass woman crew, the movie is directed by Niki Caro of Whale Rider fame. This movie is painful, but it's a must-see.
Muser tip: Next up for Caro is a live-action version of Mulan. Heroines unite!
Heart-breaking and emotional story of courage.
Sean Bean survived this movie!
Excellent performance by Charlize Theron. Worth seeing.
Nice reenactment but the abuses seemed a bit over the top at times. I did not believe them all. The girls were incredibly unsupportive also to the class lawsuit. The daddy though was a good moment in front of the group. Shame on them all! Shame on them. Very nice and unusual side story with the boy.
North Country is a film powered by extremely good intentions in presenting a woman and her journey of feminist equality. The issue dealt with is such an important and empowering one. However, there is something to be said about subtlety in dealing with these issues. Instead, North Country often falls into TV-movie trappings as it delivers its message with all the subtlety of a sledgehammer. Awkward flashbacks intersperse with court scenes done with predictable and sentimental progression. While constantly wanting the movie to succeed, it ultimately feels too much like a history lesson that spells things out way too easily, instead of a film that lets the audience piece things together themselves. Charlize Theron tries hard, but the script is obvious and boring and she is lost among silly dialogue. As is Frances McDormand, a typically great actress, not given much to work with. The best parts of the film involve the relationship Josey has with her father. These form some of the strongest scenes. I love what North Country wants to say, but I became worn out by its lack of faith in the audience. Rating: 60
This is a great movie about a strong, determined woman who won't accept the abuse in her male dominated job.
Strong cast. Predictable, but compelling story.
