The sensational true story of the Women's Liberation Movement's disruption of the 1970 Miss World pageant, an event watched by more than 100 million viewers, and which made headlines around the world. Not only that, when order was restored, the first woman of color was crowned Miss World. In a matter of hours, a global audience had witnessed the patriarchy driven from the stage and the Western ideal of beauty turned on its head.

I think it's a worth while watch. It's not going to blow you away but I found it heartwarming and a good reminder of the recent history of women's lib. Loved seeing photos of the real life activists then and today at the end.

This should have been good. It has some amazing actors, an inspiring source story, and it's British! BUT...it just falls flat. I'd recommend Official Secrets also historical and starring Keira Knightley - it's much better.

The British do historical movies so well. This is set in the not-too-distant past (1970) and is based on a true story. I enjoyed it (even though the plot twists are visible by a mile) and the acting was good. Fun and interesting movie overall.
