In an Oscar-winning performance, Sally Field (Lincoln, Forrest Gump, Mrs. Doubtfire) is unforgettable as Norma Rae, the Southern millworker who revolutionizes a small town and discovers a power in herself she never knew she 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, Norma Rae is the mesmerizing tale of a modern day heroine. Beau Bridges co-stars. Directed by Martin Ritt (Sounder, Hud, The Spy Who Came in from the Cold).
