The parents' guide to what's in this movie. The factory is like an Airfix model, with ghostly grey car seats revolving above the heads of the workers.
It stars Sally Hawkins as Rita, confident and forthright as the ordinary working mum who finds herself elevated to the position of striker-spokeswoman, battling not merely against the bosses but the smug chaps' club in general: Some have argued that Sucker Punch isn't really about the empowering of women, so I guess this film fills that void through its embodiment of Girl Power.
Regarding acting and narration, they have brought their A-game to the fore.
Made in Dagenham is a delightful and engrossing film about one of the origins of that fight for pay equality amongst the womenfolk in the UK, from what had started out as a simple walk out in a small town, to a movement that would have taken the country, and probably much of the industrial world, by storm.
I sometimes wish it was not marketed quite so aggressively with the "feelgood" tag. Language Lots of hard-edged working class swearing, British style: The outfits are in equal measure swinging and very dodgy: But there's something else going on here.
Our heroine has an all-over orange and brown daisy print bedspread, while pegged to the washing line not, I am sure, by a manly hand is a trim pair of tangerine Y-fronts. Language Lots of hard-edged working class swearing, British style: Made in Dagenham is not the salvation for British musicals many, myself included, hoped it to be but if the book is tightened by taking out the more cringe-worthy jokes and character behaviours, and more impressive choreography is added to the bigger group numbers, the otherwise strong performances and interesting story of gender equality give this musical the potential to become a popular girls night out attraction along the likes of Mama Mia and Jersey Boys.
Furthermore, none of the performances came with big, showstopping choreography or impressive set changes, save the opener of the second act which provided an all-American glitter and glamour affair which certainly made its mark but perhaps wasn't quite suited to the otherwise very British show.
In doing so she echoes the casual sexism that formed the backdrop to the Dagenham dispute, which Bean catches very well: It's an incredible film that deserves to be seen by a wide audience, and it goes into my shortlist as one of the best on offer this year.
The typography is floral. In its jaunty and insouciant way, this is actually pretty subversive: Everyone must stand tall together when facing discrimination and unfairness.
They are balanced by a sympathetic male supervisor, some loving family members, and some men in the upper echelons of society who are willing to change their views.Uplifting tale of fight for equal pay; strong language.
