A satisfying budget production
2 November 1998 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

The details listed here show this to be only 90+ minutes (USA), but in NZ it ran over several nights on television and made quite a strong impression on viewers. Made on a budget smaller than some 30-second tv ads, it is still full of solid performances, and it tells an interesting story of a real woman whose life experiences were quite extraordinary.

A particularly apt film for people interested in the early years of the women's movement and/or the Labour Party.
