Check out Sally Hawkins, Miranda Richardson, Jaime Winstone, Rosamund Pike and more in Made In Dagenham, a dramatization of the 1968 strike at Britain's Dagenham Ford plant. Director Nigel Cole (Calendar Girls) follows the women who led workers in protest against sexual discrimination (shades of Norma Rae, which won Sally Field an Oscar). The film premiered well this year at Toronto and sits nicely on the Tomatometer with 92%. It opens November 19.
