An average movie

I wasn’t really sure what to expect from this flick but since it had been fairly well received, I thought I might as well check it out. Well, to be honest, it turned out to be rather disappointing after all. I mean, sure, it was a decent historical/political drama but not much more than that. Above all, the damned thing was quite generic and predictable. Seriously, from the very first scene, I was pretty much able to figure out everything that would happen afterwards. Furthermore, another thing that bothered me was the fact that, following the events depicted during this movie, we are supposed to believe that afterwards women were given equal pay pretty much all over the world. Well, obviously, that’s not true and, 40 years later, women still don’t get the same salary as men for the very same job. What has actually changed is that the whole situation is now more hypocritical in the sense that, by law, women have the rights to get the same salary but, in reality, they don’t. At least, I do have a weak spot for Sally Hawkins and she was a good choice to play the lead but the way her character became suddenly a political activist was rather far-fetched. Concerning the male characters, it was even worse though. Indeed, except for one guy who was fully supporting these women, all the other men were portrayed as some chauvinist morons which was not only reductive but also actually pretty sexist. Anyway, to conclude, in spite of its flaws, I have to admit that it was still a decent watch and it is worth a look but don’t expect anything really amazing before watching the damned thing.
