Like a lot of her family before her, Norma Rae works at the local textile mill, where the pay is hardly commensurate with the long hours and lousy working conditions. But after hearing a rousing speech by labor activist Reuben, Norma is inspired to rally her fellow workers behind the cause of unionism. Her decision rankles her family, especially her fiancé, Sonny, and provokes no shortage of contempt from her employers.Written by
I had not seen Norma Rae for several years, but when it was on cable this weekend I tuned in. I was so drawn in from the opening credits. The song " It goes as as it flows" over the scenes inside the factory - the cotton spinning off the reels - is visual poetry. I agree with what others have said about the performances and direction.
I have often wished there was an award for credits - whether in the Academy Awards, MTV, or others. So many have really set the mood for what is coming.
Seven, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, To kill a Mockingbird, Conspiracy Theory, Panic Room, Out of Africa, Amadeus, and so many others. Whoever does credits for films should get the recognition they deserve.
