Harlan County U.S.A.

Harlan County U.S.A.

This film documents the coal miners’ strike against the Brookside Mine of the Eastover Mining Company in Harlan County, Kentucky in June, 1973. Eastovers refusal to sign a contract (when the miners joined with the United Mine Workers of America) led to the strike, which lasted more than a year and included violent battles between gun-toting company thugs/scabs and the picketing miners and their supportive women-folk. Director Barbara Kopple puts the strike into perspective by giving us some background on the historical plight of the miners and some history of the UMWA.

103 minutes are a thing of the past, like a moment, during a movie show Harlan County U.S.A. 123movies, a film that completely changes the perception of the world around us and the actions of people.

The cast in this film surpassed itself, they were able to subtly convey all the emotions and feelings, which is very important for such an interesting genre as Best Documentaries, Documentary.

Released in 1976, the film, that i watched on 123movies, immediately attracted the attention of true connoisseurs of the genre, the film is unique and catchy, the cast coped with the task perfectly.

The famous and talented Barbara Kopple knows exactly what his loyal audience wants to see, so the film (that i watched on 123movies) turned out as good as the previous works.

gave their all in this film, connecting with their characters in a single whole and living on the screen another, full of adventure life.
