“Inspired by true events, Suffragette movingly explores the passion and heartbreak of those who risked all they had for women’s right to vote—their jobs, their homes, their children and even their lives.
Carey Mulligan (An Education), Helena Bonham Carter (The King’s Speech), and three-time Academy Award winner Meryl Streep (The Iron Lady), lead the stellar cast of this powerful drama about the fight for equality in early-20th-century Britain. The stirring story centers on Maud (Mulligan), a working wife and mother who becomes an activist for the Suffragette cause alongside women from all walks of life. Written by Abi Morgan (Shame) and directed by Sarah Gavron (Brick Lane), Suffragette is an inspiring and gripping look at the brave women of history who paved the way for the activists of today. (Dir. by Sarah Gavron, 2015, UK, 106 mins., Rated PG-13)”
Carolyn’s note: I feel sad and mad when I hear women saying that there is no need to vote, or register to vote as their vote is meaningless. These women need to see this film and take their daughters too. “We’ve come a long way, baby” but not all of it is positive in the 21st Century.
