Don't let your pride in Winnipeg fool you into seeing this. Terrible.
Great music, great voices, interesting historical plot
It's nice to see it playing in a local cinema. Bet it closes fast.
What a pleasure to see a Hollywood movie with a great plot and wonderful music that can deal with class exploitation, racism, and the ability of workers to unite as one when the shit hits the fan. The Winnipeg General Strike has been hidden from history for most Canadians, and this movie puts it in plain sight and in ways that go well beyond the Winnipeg story itself.
Excellent! People were clapping at the end. As was I. And this movie will bring a tear to the eye of many. A beautifully done historical tale that delivers some very powerful and much needed messages. The world needs a movie like this right now. And all 7.53 billion humans should see it.
This film, whose Winnipeg story captured people's hearts in North America at the time in 1919, conveys a powerful message and it still "stands" today!
100 yrs ago immigrants were abused & persecuted. Workers brutalized. Difficult story of Winnipeg strike well told. Worth seeing with present day issues of union repression in mind.
Great story, well told, beautiful music, and important messages that are relevant 100 years later!
