New Posters For “Made in Dagenham” and “For Colored Girls”
I love Sally Hawkins and pretty much everyone else in Nigel Cole’s Made in Dagenham and For Colored Girls is perhaps the only Tyler Perry film I’ve ever actually wanted to see.
Sally Hawkins’ performance in Made in Dagenham has been amassing a lot of Awards Season buzz coming out of Festival Season. She won a Golden Globe for her performance in Happy-Go-Lucky in 2008, perhaps 2010 will be her year for Oscar. Here’s the synopsis:
The film is a dramatisation of the 1968 Ford sewing machinists 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.
The film is set to open in the USA (limited) on November 19th.
I’m a sucker for a good poster and with every new poster for this film I want to see it more and more. The film is an adaptation of Ntozake Shange’s 1975 stage play For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow Is Enuf. The film is set to open in the USA on November 5th.
