Close to home portrayal of Labor struggles
This movie works well on many different levels. Holly Hunter is
brilliant as Ruby Kincaid the wife of Silas - the story shows how
her strength of heart and will comes from an inner belief and drive.
the movie also shows how tough it can be at the sharp end of
labor and management battles - the final line where guns are
drawn, both sides back away and then one man is killed before
serious and ultimately successful negotiations are made is very
The score is also very well done.
