North Country


Inspired by a true story, this is the tale of one courageous woman's fight for her dignity. After a young woman leaves her abusive husband and returns home with her two kids, she struggles to make ends meet. She eventually decides to take a job in a mine, which creates more problems for her... the male miners harrass her, and the other women think there's something wrong with her. When the men go too far one day, she hires a lawyer and sues the company, which turns into a landmark case. Reviewers have praised Theron's performance while being less enthusiastic about the movie as a whole.
