This hilarious comedy of the the working class women of the Ford car manufacturing plant struggles for equal pay and equal rights was by no means faithful but it certainly captured something of the atmosphere of these extraordinary events. My favourite thing about this equally touching and entertaining film was the way in which the various female characters were portrayed as individuals, but coming together across the divides of age, politics and class. A very British film celebrating the eyeliner and mini-skirts of the sixties as well as the courage and determination of the workers involved. The 1960's style of the film was shown in the soundtrack of really good music, colourful graphics and beehive hairstyles, making Made in Dagenham glamourous as well as gritty.
