Critic Reviews for Made in Dagenham
The film's success resides in its ability to balance the mundane with the revolutionary. I was moved by stolen moments between Hawkins and Lisa Hopkins (Pike).
Although Made in Dagenham is far from perfect and has a particular fondness for those impromptu speeches which turn out to be stirringly spot-on, it is so warm-hearted and affectionate it wouldn't be right to take against it.
Made in Dagenham gamely depicts an interesting bit of history, but its real message is a matter of principle.
A spirited look -- well written, beautifully acted, full of uplift -- at lovably cheeky heroines on the march for a little respect.
Made in Dagenham does a good job of capturing the period. But too often it's simply put in service to the obvious, as heard in those uplifting choruses of "You Can Get It If You Really Want."
Audience Reviews for Made in Dagenham
An us-against-them tale of heroism that manages not to trip over it's own feet as the underpaid women at a Ford Automotive plant in England strike for better wages. By the numbers, the film fails to mention that while the ladies win (spoiler alert! ... oh, they made a movie out of it! Duh) the battle, they lose the war as Ford eventually takes its ball elsewhere to play.
An inspirational story for women's rights and good on them, however this movie is just boring. Bob Hoskins is brilliant and the cast is brilliant but not my sort of movie!
An entertaining, but curiously, slightly frustratingly middle class image of working class struggle.
