Norma Rae

"Good"

Norma Rae Review


Sally Field made us like her, really like her, as the scrappy, titular star of this unionization drama, the true story of a poor textile worker who rallies the troops to vote in the union at her plant. Now awfully dated and more than a little one-sided, Norma Rae is a fine showcase for Field's prodigious acting talents, but it's hardly the classic it's often surmised to be.
