Made In Dangenham Trailer/Synopsis

Directed by Nigel Cole ( Calender Girls ) starring Sally Hawkins, Miranda Richardson, Bob Hoskins, Rosamund Pike, Richard Schiff, Jaime Winstone and Rupert Graves.

The film is a dramatisation of the 1968 strike at the Ford Dagenham assembly plant, where female workers walked out in protest against sexual discrimination and the desire for equal pay. The walkout was instrumental in the Equal Pay Act 1970. The women did not actually work at the Dagenham assembly plant but a mile or so away on the other side of the rail tracks at the River Plant (a collection of sheds) on Sammy Williams land near Dagenham Dock Station. The Halewood-based women also joined the strike.

Oscar chances ? Possible for Sally Hawkins in leading actress. Very good shot for Mirnada Richradson in support.

Started to really pay attention to film ( movies ) what was going on in front of the camera, but more interestingly, behind it as well at about as far back as age 10. Motion pictures ( when good ) are a fascinating medium. All the work and prep that goes into filmmaking. It's an amazing process !
