Movie Quote of the Day – North Country, 2005 (dir. Niki Caro)

Hank Aimes: My name is Hank Aimes and I’ve been a ranger all my life. And I’ve never been ashamed of it until now. You know when we take our wives and daughters to the company barbecue, I don’t hear any of them calling them those names like bitches and whores and worse. I don’t see anyone grab them by their privates or drawing pictures of them on the bathroom walls, it’s unspeakable. Unspeakable! So what’s changed? She’s still my daughter! It’s a heck of a thing, to watch one of your own get treated that way. You’re all supposed to be my friends, my brothers. Well, right now I don’t have a friend in this room. In fact the only one I’m not ashamed of is my daughter.
