Brief Synopsis – The true story of a female mill worker who helped create a union in a small Alabama mill town
My Take on it – I have had little interest in watching this movie even though I knew a lot about it and especially am familiar with numerous famous scenes in the film.
Surprisingly, I quite enjoyed this movie, especially Sally Field in her first best actress oscar winning role.
The viewer can feel how much of a risk she needs to take in order to make things better for her family, friends and ultimately herself.
This movie seems to give a full portrait of how mill workers struggled to get unionized.
Bottom Line – Pretty good story that is overshadowed by Sally Fields spectacular performance. Seems to appropriately portray the difficulties that union workers faced before they were able to start unionizing. Recommended!
Rating – Globe Worthy
