"I can't cheer this movie enough...this is simply a good film."—Michael Ventura, L.A. Weekly

A Labor Day Presentation!

In an Oscar-winning performance, Sally Field is unforgettable as Norma Rae, the Southern millworker who revolutionizes a small town and discovers a power in herself she never had. Under the guidance of a New York unionizer (Ron Leibman) and with increasing courage and determination, Norma Rae organizes her fellow factory workers to fight for better conditions and wages. Based on a true story, this film is the mesmerizing tale of a modern day heroine.
