This is a feel-good story that came from an actual series of events involving a small group of women working in a factory. (Don't be put off by the title; Dagenham is in England, not Germany or Norway.) The lead actress is likable, as are her friends and her surprisingly supportive husband. Only regret is I wish the film-makers had devoted a little more time to developing the lead actress's character. We start the film not knowing her and unfortunately end it the same way.

The movie is great. I had trouble with the DVD to start with, it kept breaking up, but then I straightened it and cleaned it and it was fine. Very clever movie plus thought provoking. Any woman would appreciate the story line. Men don't fair so well but it did show how many of them supported this cause for 'equal pay for equal work'.

The British cast is superlative, and Sally Hawkins is the crown jewel in this true tale of the female workers struggle to gain equal pay for work of equal value at Dagenham's Ford factory. Intelligent, slyly humorous, and at times heart-rending, this is a film to have in your library.
