Made in Dagenham (2010)

In feel good, film, Law, period drama, Recommendation on 01/07/2011 at 6:07 pm

Made in Dagenham tells the rather marvellous story of the women who worked at the Ford factory in Dagenham in the late 1960s and how one supposedly ordinary lady called Rita O’Grady (well done Sally Hawkins) ends up making all the difference. They’re the first women workers to go on strike and they hold on for three weeks.

It’s a perfect feel good film about very important stuff with great actors and stunning sixties hairdos. That, and Miranda Richardson as Barbara Castle (the Minister who really made it happen) is terrific.
