  • 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. Full Review

  • Undermined by the totally absurd courtroom climactics. Full Review

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

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

  • 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. Full Review
