Lancashire mill girls declare their independence.
27 October 2000 | by (Edinburgh) – See all my reviews

A stunning masterpiece from the silent era. The plot tells of the development of true financial and sexual independence amongst the working mill girls of Lancashire. Ok it's funny in places by our standards now, but so far ahead of it's time. The latter part of the film depends on dialogue. Now to do that and do that well in silent movie takes talent.

I'm not asking anyone to go and see it. If you do, In The Nursery have put together a new soundtrack for it that captures the essence of the film perfectly.
