New York imports ‘Made in Dagenham’

Sony Pictures Classics premiere's timely

Nigel Cole insisted that his “Made in Dagenham” actresses take sewing classes to look the part of seat-cover makers. He, however, chose to skip out. “I’ve never sewed anything in my life,” the helmer disclosed at Sunday’s Cinema Society screening at the Tribeca Grand Hotel.

Sally Hawkins, who plays a union leftie in the Sony Pictures Classics pic, said the film’s release is perfect timing, since Congress votes this week to revamp the Equal Pay Act.

SPC’s Tom Bernard also displayed a feminist bent. “They should be getting more work,” he said of femme filmmakers. “I’d like to see a story about an empowered woman doing incredible deeds rather than a story about men doing incredible deeds.”
