North Country

ALL SHE WANTED WAS TO MAKE A LIVING. INSTEAD SHE MADE HISTORY.

northcountryIn 1989, Josey Aimes (Charlize Theron) becomes one of few women to work in Northern Minnesota’s iron mines, but she finds herself unable to put up with the sexual harassment. Loosely based on a real-life landmark case, it is a film with good location flavor, a sympathetic subject matter and effective performances. The story is gripping enough, but it is also a bit too simple-minded. Its black-and-white approach renders the attempts at complicating matters unconvincing. Still, it is easy to get manipulated by the story and in that sense, Niki Caro’s film is a triumph.
