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.

Harlan County U.S.A. 123movies review

Yesterday I watched an unusually interesting film Harlan County U.S.A., which in 103 minutes plunged me into an amazing story full of adventures and mysteries on the 123movies website.

It seems to me that I have not seen anything similar in the genre Best Documentaries, Documentary for a long time, the plot of the film is so unpredictable that until the last moment I did not know what would happen in the ending.

One of the best 1976 films of its kind I\'ve seen at 123movies, with a unique storyline that morphed into a totally unpredictable ending.

Barbara Kopple has always had brilliant work, but this truly masterpiece, with such well thought out details, made the film one of the best in its genre.

The ingenious game did not go unnoticed for the attentive viewer, they became one with their characters, turning the illusion into reality.
