Although far from the Swinging Sixties of Carnaby Street, life for the women of Dagenham, England, was tinged with the sounds and sights of the optimistic era. Rita O'Grady reflects that upbeat era, along with her friends and co-workers at the city's Ford Motor Factory — who laugh in the face of their poor work conditions. Rita, who primarily sees herself as a wife and mother, is coerced into attending a meeting with the shop steward, a sympathetic union representative and Ford's Head of Industrial Relations. Rita and her colleagues become outraged by the lack of respect shown in the meeting to the women employees. With liberal doses of humor, common sense and courage they take on their disrespectful bosses, an increasingly belligerent local community and finally the government. Directed by Nigel Cole. Starring Sally Hawkins, Bob Hoskins, Miranda Richardson, Rosamund Pike, Rupert Graves. Rated R for language and brief sexuality/113m/S/Sony Pictures Classics
