From the director of Calendar Girls comes the new comedy-drama with an all star British cast, Made in Dagenham.

The film, formerly known under the working title of ‘We Want Sex’, is out in cinemas on 1st October and stars the award winning Sally Hawkins as Rita O’Grady.

O’Grady was the catalyst for the 1968 Ford Dagenham strike by 187 sewing machinists which led to the advent of the Equal Pay Act and the film follows shows them taking on their corporate paymasters. 

The leader of the women’s struggle is fast-talking, no nonsense Rita whose fiery temper and occasionally hilarious unpredictability proves to be a match for any of her male opponents, and is echoed by Barbara Castle’s struggle in the male-dominated House of Commons.

The film stars a host of Britain’s finest acting talent including Sally Hawkins (Happy-Go-Lucky, It’s A Wonderful Afterlife), Bob Hoskins (The Long Good Friday, Mona Lisa), Miranda Richardson (Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire), Rosamund Pike (Pride & Prejudice, An Education), Jaime Winstone (Donkey Punch, Kidulthood), and Geraldine James (Sherlock Holmes, Calendar Girls).
