As a look behind that T-shirt you just bought on sale for $9.99 at The Gap, and the human labor, sweat and suffering that went into it, this... definitely deserves wider attention.

Made in Bangladesh finds urgency and compassion in its plea for basic human rights for all in the workplace.

"Made in Bangladesh" includes some faults that dull the impact of its main theme somewhat; however, it remains quite a worthy effort that succeeds in highlighting a number of very important aspects of Bangladesh's current society.

Earnest social activist film should remind you of Norma Rae.

Rubaiyat Hossain's third feature film is striking in both theme and technique. Made in Bangladesh is a formal marvel.

Made in Bangladesh never sugar coats the near-insurmountable obstacles Shimu and her fellow workers face...[the] mix scenes of Shimu coming up against barriers with scenes of her achieving small successes ensures the film never feels hopeless.
