"...Holly Hunter gives a heartfelt performance as clear-sighted Ruby, the wife of a miner..."

Product Description:

Holly Hunter stars in this Showtime Original as Ruby Kincaid, the wife of a coal miner in Harlan County, KY in the 1970s. Ruby, an intelligent and headstrong woman, witnesses two deaths and her husband's near fatal accident, and watches her husband and his colleagues engage in a bitter but fruitless union war with their employers, the Eastover Mining Company, and their gun toting, strike breaking thugs. Thoroughly enraged, Ruby decides to take matters into her own hands, and, with the help of a union organizer named Warren Jakopovich (Skarsgard), Ruby wages he own war on the Eastover Mining Company. Based on a true story (chronicled in the documentary HARLAN COUNTY USA), HARLAN COUNTY WAR is a fascinating and often heartbreaking look at the lives of these coal miners that is galvanized by Hunter's strong performance as Ruby, making it at once a rousing drama and brutal look at labor practices in the US.
