Made In Dagenham

Rating = C+

The movie is about (if it has a true basis) an important, interesting step in the fight for women's equality. Even if it was fictional, it could have been an engaging story. Instead, the film is mostly forgettable. It is not structured to have much dramatic tension, and what dramatic tension they try for is ineffective. It is disappointing to see Sally Hawkins, who was so great in “Happy Go Lucky,” wasted in this film.
