Made in Dagenham

A friend of mine saw this and recommends it!
The movie starts at 4:55. Meet in the lobby or come find us in the theater. The $1 event fee is to help cover the cost of the website, but everyone just buys their own ticket. We'll go somewhere after the film.
Cast: Sally Hawkins, Bob Hoskins, Miranda Richardson, Geraldine James, Rosamund Pike, Andrea Riseborough, Jaime Winstone, Daniel Mays, Richard Schiff, Lorraine Stanley, Nicola Duffett 

Director: Nigel Cole 

Genres: Period Film/Drama/Inspirational Drama Rita O’Grady (Sally Hawkins) reflects that upbeat era, along with her friends and co-workers at the city's Ford Motor Factory who laugh in the face of their poor conditions. Lisa (Rosamund Pike) is a fiercely intelligent Cambridge-educated woman , tending to the home with a husband that suggests she keep her opinions to herself. Rita is coerced into attending a meeting with shop steward Connie, sympathetic union representative Albert (Bob Hoskins) and Peter Hopkins (Rupert Graves), Ford’s Head of Industrial Relations. What she expects to be simply a day out of work, complete with a free lunch, turns into much more when she and her colleagues become outraged by the lack of respect shown in the meeting to the women employees.

    The movie, based upon true events, features solid performances by the cast and wonderful period detail--the group really enjoyed it. Another fun discussion followed at European Street.

    A delightful period piece once you sort out the English dialect. We had a fun discussion afterwards at E Street Cafe.
