Niki Caro's Hollywood debut is as well-acted as Whale Rider. But it lacks the spine to match its leading lady's richly layered contribution.

A wobbly fiction about a real pioneering sex-discrimination case, North Country is an unabashed vehicle for its modestly de-glammed star, Charlize Theron.

In real life, it's an inspiring story, but this movie is pathetically scared of alienating the male audience demographic...

North Country is one of those movies that stir you up and make you mad, because it dramatizes practices you've heard about but never really visualized.
