★★★ A cheery drama­ti­sa­tion

of a try­ing time for work­ing women in the UK in the late 1960s. At the Da­gen­ham fac­tory of Ford, the com­pany’s US ex­ec­u­tives have re­clas­si­fied all Bri­tish fe­male em­ploy­ees as ‘‘un­skilled labour’’. The women are not about to take this in­sult ly­ing down and even­tu­ally get the whole nation on their side. A true story given its full due. Stars Sally Hawkins, Mi­randa Richard­son.
