A good story, but the movie isn't great.

Fabulous piece of 60s history in Britain, no doubt partly fictionalized but very well made indeed: fine acting, directing, good script, nice faithful art direction that never calls attention to itself. Sally Hawkins is charming, stellar, again never showy but in the service of putting together a credible role. This is about feminism as it should be: about human rights, where all benefit. Stellar little flick that's moving without ever getting syrupy or cloying.

Worth the wait. A fairly realistic portrayal, with few simplifications, on what occurred during this time period. Acting was beautifully done.

Story is important. Seems authentic.
Well acted.
Vulgarity fits in with the characters being portrayed, it is not gratuitous.
One absurd scene is inserted it seems solely to get rating of R or whatever, it has no connection to the story.

REPRESSION HAS AN EXPIRATION DATE, when the repressed wage-slaves & landless serfs, rise against masters, lords & corporations.

Finally, few HEROINES like RITA, rise up to the occasion against powerful-odds, risking their own lives, families, reputations, friends & jobs, forcing the WORLD to accept change.
