MADE IN DAGENHAM, As produced by heavyweight Stephen Woolley (THE CRYING GAME) and headlined by Sally Hawkins (HAPPY-GO-LUCKY) and Bob Hoskins (THE LONG GOOD FRIDAY), this period docudrama brings to life a pivotal event from British history. In 1968, women's rights took a broad leap forward when workers at the Ford Dagenham automobile plant -- buckling beneath deplorable working conditions rightly perceived as gender discrimination -- suddenly stormed out into the streets and began to strike in protest of the unfair treatment levied at them. Little could they have foreseen the ramifications that this courageous and noble act would engender in successive years. MADE IN DAGENHAM is a soulful retro romp for everyone's inner activist, helmed by director, Christopher Smith.
