question of the day: How big a problem is it that Hollywood no longer makes movies about blue-collar, working-class people?

Leah Rozen in The New York Times, writing about the new British film Made in Dagenham, about women in the late 1960s who struck the Ford plant where they worked, makes a cogent point that hadn’t occurred to me until I read her words, though it’s clearly so head-smackingly obvious that it almost doesn’t need to be said: Hollywood doesn’t make movies about working-class Americans anymore.
