NORTH COUNTRY
(Niki Caro, US 2005, 126 min., 35mm)
”Sexual harassment will not be tolerated, but will be graded.” These words appeared on signs posted around a Minnesota iron ore processing plant after the state asked plant management to develop a sexual harassment policy. That demand was in response to a class action sexual harassment lawsuit—the first in America—brought against the Eveleth mining company by women workers, members of the United Steelworkers’ union. North Country vividly depicts the women’s harassment in the workplace and their response on the job, in the union, and in the courtroom. Strong performances by Charlize Theron, Frances McDormand, Sissy Spacek and Woody Harrelson, and a score featuring songs by Minnesota’s Bob Dylan.
