Coming Soon – Made in Dagenham

Made in Dagenham

This morning I got an email from Paramount Premiere Club, asking my thoughts on the new trailer for Made in Dagenham. Due to be released on October 1st and with a stellar cast including Sally Hawkins, Bob Hoskins, and Miranda Richardsons, the film focuses on the 1968 strike at the Ford Dagenham plant. This was a strike by women, who worked long hours in crappy conditions, against their jobs being reclassified as “unskilled”. The strike, by 187 women galvanised the country and was the catalyst for the Equal Pay Act.

Directed by Nigel Cole (Calendar Girls) this movie may look like it’s aimed at a very specific demographic, but if the film is as witty and inspiring as the trailer suggests, I think this will be a must see for later in the year.
