Made in Dagenham Official Poster

Thompson on Hollywood

Made in Dagenham releases November 19 following its festival circuit, from Toronto to last week’s AFI Fest screening. Our Oscar Predicts Chart places star Sally Hawkins as a Long Shot Best Actress contender (remember her as Slasher in 2004’s Layer Cake?), and Miranda Richardson as a Front Runner for Best Supporting Actor, while RottenTomatoes places the film at a very respectable 92%.

The new official poster, crammed with review quotes, is aimed at older Academy voters and women. (In Contention’s London-based Guy Lodge points out that the original poster was based on a more comedic U.K. treatment.) That’s because the heart of the movie–about the woman who single-handedly pushes England to put through legislation for equal pay for equal work– resonates most with women. (Truth is, the movie is also entertaining and funny, thanks to Hawkins.)

The trailer is after the jump.
