Charliez Theron delivers a good performance of a flawed mother of two trying to earn a living at the iron/steel mines in Minnesota in 1989, and faces on a daily basis plenty of harrassment by a group of men who don't like women working at the mines, since taking away jobs for other men. A landmark court case evolves from this scenario. Director Niki Caro takes her time in setting up the characters, and conditions. I thought the pacing was just about right for this dramatic material. The supporting cast is good, but then again, having 3 female Oscar winners in the cast doesn't hurt. There are 'good' men and not-so-good men, and there are women who are scared for their livelihood, in spite of the harrassment they have to with deal with, and have many doubts about future employment opportunities (at their current wages) which prevent them from coming forth with their own accounts of harrassment at the work place. I give a 3 stars, or a grade of B.
