Made in Dagenham is a retro romp with heart, smarts, soul and wit that will restore your faith in the power of the picket line.

The unexpected thing about Made in Dagenham is how entertaining it is.

Sally Hawkins is the heart and soul of Made in Dagenham, but another actress to watch for is the equally wonderful Rosamund Pike. She steals every scene she's in as the sympathetic wife of Rita's sexist boss (Rupert Graves).

Sally Hawkins is just plain irresistible in this funny, touching and vital salute to women in the work force.

It's still a spirited look - well written, beautifully acted, full of uplift - at lovably cheeky heroines on the march for a little respect.
75
This time out, with a few exceptions, the inspiration feels solid and earned, not saccharine and contrived.

The Hollywood Reporter
The real-life tale of a group of female machinists who took on the Ford Motor Co. in England and earned equal pay for women gets a rousing and entertaining telling in Nigel Cole's crowd-pleasing Made in Dagenham.

The film, while unfailingly entertaining, feels a little small for its subject.

Too often the story feels like it's being mined for recycled beats.
63
The movie moves, but it doesn't breathe.
