Made in Dagenham

A dramatisation of the 1968 strike at the Ford Dagenham car plant, where female workers walked out in protest against sexual discrimination.

This will be a nostalgic journey for some of you as we go back to the time when Ford dominated Dagenham and much of the British car market.

As the Guardian said in its review:

“It may have had a little too much of the grimness removed, but this sweet-natured film about a 1968 strike for equal pay is a properly feel good film.”

Starring Sally Hawkins, Bob Hoskins & Andrea Riseborough

Highly recommended.
