Made in Dagenham (2010)

A dramatization of the 1968 strike at the Ford Dagenham car plant, where female workers walked out in protest against sexual discrimination.

Likeable and lightweight period piece with a spirited cast depicting an important episode of British history, the political stance, however, quite toned down.

Maltin**: "Routine dramatization of a meaty, true-life story...The film gives its audience no credit for understanding anything that isn't spelled out and underlined. Good performances, especially Hawkins as the unlikely labor leader, make it watchable."
