A vintage “girl power” tale based on the true story of 187 female sewing machine operators at a Ford plant sweatshop in 1968, whose threat to strike eventually led the British Parliament to pass an Equal Pay Act. Starring award-winner Sally Hawkins as Rita, their fast-talking, fiery-tempered leader who proves an unexpectedly tough match for her male opponents; and Miranda Richardson as the upper-class politician who takes on the women’s cause in the male-dominated Parliament. 113 minutes, rated R for language and brief sexuality.

“Delightfully entertaining”. . .largely due to Sally Hawkins, who shows an effortless lightness of being.”—Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

“Shamelessly perfect.”—David Edelstein, New York Magazine

“So smoothly written and well acted that its humanity and good will leave you with a 1960s buzz of hope that social justice might be at hand.” – Stephen Holden, New York Times
