Even though Charlize Theron is getting a lot
of attention due to her upcoming film Aeon
Flux, one of her other films that has dodged the rader,
due most in part to a name change, is the upcoming drama titled North
Country. Based on a fictionalized account of the first major sexual
harassment case, Jenson vs. Eveleth Mines, we get to see Charlize Theron
in a whole non - Aeon Flux light.
North Country Movie Poster
We have recently had the first movie poster and
official synopsis for the upcoming drama North Country [formerly
titled Untitled Niki Caro Project]. Check out the poster and synopsis
North Country movie poster.
"North Country" stars Academy Award winners Charlize Theron ("Monster"), Frances McDormand ("Fargo") and Sissy Spacek ("In the Bedroom") in the inspiring story of a single mother who rallies her coworkers to rise above the unfair treatment they face at a local mining company.
In the wake of a failed marriage, Josey Aimes (Charlize Theron) returns to her hometown in Northern Minnesota hoping to build a better life for herself and her two children. Encouraged by her friend Glory (Frances McDormand), one of the few female miners in town, Josey takes a job at the mine.
She's prepared for the back-breaking and often dangerous work, but coping with the harassment she and the other female miners encounter from their male coworkers proves far more challenging.
Josey's attempts to carve out a better future for her family put her at odds with her children, her disapproving parents (Sissy Spacek and "Six Feet Under"'s Richard Jenkins) and her community.
It is through this struggle that Josey finds the courage to stand up for what she believes in – even if that means standing alone. Ultimately, her journey takes her farther than she could have ever imagined and inspires countless others to follow.
With all the action, thriller and adventure films
coming our way for the rest of the year, North Country should offer
an interesting change of pace for those looking for a solid drama. Personally,
I am more excited to see Charlize Theron in something a little more tight.
