Sally Hawkins plays Rita O’Grady, who is the initiator of the strike at Ford in Dagenham in 1968 of 187 machinists, which has led to the Equal Wages Act. Working in extremely poor conditions long hours, having to balance family life, women at the Ford plant in Dagenham have finally lost patience when they were called “unqualified”.

With humor, common sense and courage, she faces on their payers, a local community more and more belligerent and, eventually, the government itself. The leader of women’s struggle Rita, voluble on the subject, whose fiery temperament and comic unpredictability proves the extent of any male opponent, and fight like Barbara Castle in the House of Commons dominated by men.

In this consistent and precise scenario of William Ivory is directed by Nigel Cole, a professional strikingly in control director if we notice that in the twenty-year career, he has made only four feature films, plus a few movies television (documentaries and episodes of series). How, let alone, Cole is revealed not only a very good reader and developer of scenarios, but also a filmmaker and forceful style – as quietly and without ostentation as Ivory’s script (in his turn, a writer formed in television studios).
