  • As produced by heavyweight Stephen Woolley (THE CRYING GAME) and headlined by Sally Hawkins (HAPPY-GO-LUCKY) and Bob Hoskins (THE LONG GOOD FRIDAY), this period docudrama brings to life a pivotal event from British history. In 1968, women's rights took a broad leap forward when workers at the Ford Dagenham automobile plant -- buckling beneath deplorable working conditions rightly perceived as gender discrimination -- suddenly stormed out into the streets and began to strike in protest of the unfair treatment levied at them. Little could they have foreseen the ramifications that this courageous and noble act would engender in successive years. Christopher Smith directs.

  • Critic Reviews
    3 stars out of 5 -- "Sally Hawkins is typically fine as the ladies' leader, an Essex-based Norma Rae whose soft speaking voice makes her rabble-rousing all the more stirring."
    Total Film

    "[S]cenes sneak up and grab you....Ms. Pike, like Ms. Hawkins, is a formidable actress."
    Wall Street Journal

    "British director Nigel Cole has an appealingly arch way of looking at human foibles, even when dealing with historical fact, which he is here."
    Los Angeles Times

    3 stars out of 4 -- "Sally Hawkins is just plain irresistible in this funny, touching and vital salute to women in the work force."
    Rolling Stone

    3.5 stars out of 4 -- "The unexpected thing about MADE IN DAGENHAM is how entertaining it is. That's largely due to director Nigel Cole's choice of Sally Hawkins for his lead."
    Chicago Sun-Times

    "[T]he movie recaptures the youthful optimism that buoyed '60s British movies in the post-kitchen-sink era."
    New York Times
