I first saw this movie when it was originally released, some 40 years ago. It has certainly withstood the passage of time. Sally Field gives a riveting performance as Norma Ray, a woman who has experienced many losses and hardships who comes into her own power. And Ron Lieberman does an outstanding job as her mentor Ruben, the union organizer. Excellent supporting actors, and a wonderful portrayal of a sleepy little deep southern town that is slow to accept the exotic outsider, an educated NYC Jewish man. In retrospect I realize that the unionization of the textile mill proceeded relatively smoothly, but that does not detract from the courage displayed by Norma Ray and the other factory workers in daring to challenge authority, and in crossing racial and cultural lines in recognition of the fact that the white and black workers have common grievances and need to pull together. But I did find the ending very unsatisfactory. There is no resolution regarding Norma Ray's arrest; the union should have represented her in court, and gotten her job back and/or compensation.

Sally Field is a national treasure. Everyone in Working Girl-highlighted by the great theme-spectacular. I love Joan Cusack in everything. Melanie Griffith, Sigourney Weaver-great!!

This represents Hollywood's condescending view of the South. Southerners are portrayed as too dumb to take care of themselves. They can only serve withe help of Northern Lefties.
A dated film. Good for its time. But not far from unwatchable as "From Here to Eternity." Romanticized story . . . very 70's.
