North Country – Review

WHAT’S IT ABOUT?

When Josey (Theron) runs away from her violent husband, she needs to get a decent job to support her kids.
Moving back home to her parents’ place, she bumps into an old friend, Glory (McDormand), who suggests she gets a well-paid job at the local mine cluedo formulier downloaden.
Back in the early 1980s, it just wasn’t the done thing for a woman to work down the mine – and Josey’s father Hank (Jenkins), a mine veteran, is dead set against the idea download youtube mp3 downloader.
But she needs the money – and takes the job – and before long, the men of the mine are making her life hell.
Determined not to let them get away with it, with the help of a new friend (Harrelson), who just happens to be a lawyer, she decides to sue the company, but with even more men turning against her – and many women retreating into the shadows – the task ahead of her looks impossible music pages to download.

WHAT’S IT LIKE?

This is a bit like Erin Brokovich down a mine, and I’m sure Charlize Theron had a second Oscar in her mind when the screenplay first crossed her desk anton app herunterladen google play store. With a nomination, she’s half way there, but it’s unlikely she’ll collect a trophy this time.
It’s a good enough performance, but far from spectacular, and more importantly, for a film about the first major sexual harrassment case in US industrial history, the material is surprisingly uninspiring download bkv.

The plot just nudges along, bit by bit, without any great emotional peaks and troughs.
And when it finally comes to a head, it’s as cinematically convenient as it is realistically preposterous herunterladen.
