PRIMO Martin Ritt. Thank God for this film. Along with "To Kill a Mockingbird" (the book and the film, both), it gives me hope that the essential spirit of democracy and justice in America cannot die, despite what's subsequently become of the labor unions in this country. Colossal performances by Field, Leibman, and the incomparable Pat Hingle.

I had to watch this movie for school. Usually when ever we watch a movie there, I get nervous because most of the movies the teachers make us watch are hopelessly boring. I can't say this movie was that, but I'm still wondering why it won so many Oscars.

I really had no desire to see this movie for a very long time. As I have been getting older though, I have been renting and watching older movies more and more. I decided I would finally watch "Norma Rae" and see for myself why people have been raving about Sally Field's performance for all these years. For once the hype was right. Her portrayal as the title character is nothing short of amazing. In the climactic scene when she holds up the "Union" sign, the viewer can't help but feel the pains and agony of her struggle against enormous odds. Seeing this movie reminded me of my new love for older films.

A Wonderful true story of a poor woman with courage and determination. You don't have to be famous or rich to make a differents in the world.
