Norma Rae Blu-ray Review


“Politically lifted, Norma Rae retains its relevancy at a time of gross income inequality, even if the insular perception cuts off before post-Union results set in. This is less an anecdote of Southern disgruntlement and more singularly fixated on Rea’s gumption in a period where race division was still embedded, let alone a woman’s rights movement. Irving Ravetch and Harriet Frank Jr. build their screenplay around an audience appealing heroine while director Martin Ritt smartly lets Field’s work the camera. Results are genuine and feel delivered without acidic embellishment.”
