Norma Rae (1979)



Reviews and Comments

Even if you've never seen the film, you've probably seen the scene where Sally Fields silently stands up in the middle of a mill with a "Union" sign. It's a powerful moment in a powerful film, based on a true story of the unionization of a textile mill. Fields turns in a wonderfully moving Oscar-winning performance.
