Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • The movie is based on the case: Jenson v. Eveleth Mines and is reported in the book: Class Action. The Josey Aimes character was in real life a woman named Lois Jenson who went to work for the mines in 1975 and endured 13 years of harassment before filing her first legal complaint of sexual harassment. By the time she received compensation from the company (in 1999) her children were all grown up and she had been forced to quit working because she was too disabled to work (as a result of harassment). She was raped and had a son, but it wasn't when she was in high school. It was when she was older.
  • The lawsuit which inspired this film was settled in 1998, 10 years after it was first filed and over 20 years after the harassments began.
  • Movie Goof (anachronisms): The movie takes place in 1988-89, yet it frequently shows the Clarence Thomas (II)/Anita Hill hearings, which happened in 1991.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): When Bill White is sitting at the bar, contemplating whether to talk to Josie, the second button on his right sleeve is unbuttoned. When he gets up to go talk to her, he lifts his right arm, and his shirt sleeve is fully buttoned.
