About star in We Want Sex. The film is about a 1968 strike at an English car plant where women demanded equal pay. More than 800 women protested "against sexual discrimination in their job performance evaluations,". The strike was a boost to the women’s rights movement. The title is taken from their 'We Want Sex Equality' banner that got cut off.

My 5 cents British dramas don't light up US cinemas, expect it do to Happy go lucky, Kinky Boots numbers, 2-3m. Could see it as a Bafta prospect.

Recommendation Short, Hawkins recently picked up a GG and should have a following now, but when you look at a similar US film like North Country what Charlize did after winning an Oscar, only managed $18 million, H$8 for this feels over priced.
