I hadn’t really planned on seeing this movie, but for some reason I just felt drawn to it today. It was this or Doom, and on the surface I seemed to be more in the mood for Doom but decided instead to see North Country, and excuse the expression, but boy am I glad I did.

There are some movies that a reviewer will see and can’t help but editorialize about, for me North Country is one of those movies. Not since Sally Fields in Norma Rae have we seen such a powerful female character in film. Charlize Theron is absolutely brilliant as Josey Aimes and she takes the viewer by the throat and throws them down. We get kicked and punched in the gut with the reality of abuse that many women go through on a day to day basis.

NORTH COUNTRYNorth Country affirms that truth will set you free, that lives can be renewed and that you are not alone. In the middle, the movie tells the story of a single mother, a working mother, a mother who believes she can attain more for her children.

Josie Aimes (Theron) flees with her two children from an abusive husband, running into the apathetic lives of her parents (Spacek and Jenkins.) In the process of trying to establish her independence, she becomes one of 20-some women who work in the mine in Northern Minnesota. Her son Sammy (Curtis) butts heads with her over her decisions and their animosity grows. Nothing can prepare Aimes for what awaits her in the mine as she seeks a fresh start. Her desire to differentiate herself from her past drives her into the darkness of the mine, and of the souls of the men there.
