North Country

North Country What Josey Aimes wants is a decent job so that she can put food on the table and take care of her kids. What she gets is threatened, insulted, ogled, fondled, belittled, attacked and called filthy names. ''Take it like a man,'' her callous male boss says. Instead, she takes it like a human being — and fights back.

Charlize Theron portrays Josey in North Country, the searing story of women who broke the gender barrier labouring in hazardous Minnesota iron mines... and broke legal ground with the nation's first class-action sexual-harrassment lawsuit.

Frances McDormand, Sissy Spacek, Woody Harrelson and Sean Bean star with Theron in this emotionally explosive tale of taking on the odds to achieve what every American worker knows is right: self-respect on the job.
