From the director of Calendar Girls, a thought-provoking comedy drama based on the strike by the women workers at the Dagenham Ford plant in 1968. When the women demand equal pay with their male colleagues, they spark off a furious debate about sexism within British industry, the Trades Unions and the political establishment which leads indirectly to the Equal Pay Act of 1970. A splendid British cast produce a feel-good movie reminiscent of the best of the Ealing comedies.
