>> Review It




Set in the industrial South and based on a true story, Martin Ritt's Norma Rae is a moving portrait of a woman's fight to improve both her own life and the deplorable conditions that exist in the mill where she works.Norma Rae (Sally Field) has worked at the textile mill for years, but when she realizes her mother has gone deaf from working there her whole life, Norma takes on the hostility of the mill's management and the apathy of her co-workers to try and unionize the mill.Field plays Norma Rae as a passionate woman who realizes her own potential and her need to rebel against the status quo.She is also infuriated by the conditions at the mill.When Norma, uneducated and poor, finally expresses her disgust with life at the mill, it is an electrifying moment and Field radiates this energy for the rest of the film, providing an emotional core and drive that gives the picture its power.
