MADE IN DAGENHAM “Girl Power” Clips
In the same vein as NORMA RAE and cut from the same cloth as CALENDAR GIRLS/THE FULL MONTY, here are some clips in what may very well be the sleeper hit of the 2010 awards season. Tonight, Maple Pictures Corp. will premiere their flick MADE IN DAGENHAM starring Sally Hawkins at TIFF 2010. Have a look first at the original trailer.
and now for the 7 clips:
Sally Hawkins stars as Rita O’Grady, the catalyst for the 1968 Ford Dagenham strike by 187 sewing machinists which led to the advent of the Equal Party Act. Working in extremely impoverished conditions for long, arduous hours, the women at the Ford Dagenham plant finally lose their patience when they are reclassified as “unskilled.” With humour, common sense and courage, they take on their corporate paymasters, an increasingly belligerent local community, and finally the government itself. The film also stars Bob Hoskins, Miranda Richardson, Geraldine James and Rosamund Pike.
MADE IN DAGENHAM is scheduled for a November 19, 2010 release.
