    Norma Rae

    ★★½

    I’m fascinated by likable Oscar winners from the ‘70s and ‘80s that absolutely no one watches today, especially “issue” movies with moderately progressive, crowd-pleasing politics. Silkwood also comes to mind. It doesn’t portend well for most middlebrow award winners today. Norma Rae hits the usual underdog paces, but it undercuts its own feminist message by implying that Rae is initially interested in union organizing due to her interest in a man. Sally Field is charming and likable and does a bunch of Acting.

    They can’t all be winners.
