"North Country" will make its world premiere at the 30th Toronto International Film Festival as a Gala Presentation on Monday, September 12

WORLD PREMIERE OF NIKI CARO'S NORTH COUNTRY A GALA PRESENTATION

Toronto – Niki Caro's NORTH COUNTRY receives its world premiere as a Gala Presentation at the 30th Toronto International Film Festival. NORTH COUNTRY stars Academy Award©-winner Charlize Theron in an inspiring story of a single mother who rallies her female coworkers to rise above the unfair treatment they face at a local mining company. At once inspiring and heartwrenching, NORTH COUNTRY also delivers commanding performances from fellow cast members and Academy Award©-winners Frances McDormand and Sissy Spacek, along with Sean Bean, Richard Jenkins, Jeremy Renner, Michelle Monaghan, and Woody Harrelson.

In the wake of a failed marriage, Josey Aimes (Charlize Theron) returns to her hometown in Northern Minnesota hoping to build a better life for herself and her two children. Encouraged by her friend Glory (Frances McDormand), one of the few female miners in town, Josey takes a job at the mine.

She's prepared for the back-breaking and often dangerous work, but coping with the harassment she and the other female miners encounter from their male coworkers proves far more challenging.

Josey's attempts to carve out a better future for her family put her at odds with her children, her disapproving parents (Sissy Spacek and Richard Jenkins), and her community. Through this struggle she finds the courage to stand up for what she believes in – even if that means standing alone. Ultimately, her journey takes her farther than she could have ever imagined and inspires countless others to follow.

NORTH COUNTRY is directed by Niki Caro from a screenplay by Michael Seitzman. Produced by Nick Wechsler, the film is distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures.
