SUFFRAGETTE

Suffragette
Drama. Staring Carey Mulligan and Helena Bonham Carter, directed by Sarah Gavron


What women in Britain went through to get the vote in the 1920s is this movie’s gripping story. The brutality and cruelty the women faced is depicted with candor and power. The characters are fictitious but the story is true. Working conditions, male dominance and political intransigence kept especially poor women powerless. Meryl Streep plays a walk-in-role as Emmaline Pankhurst, a radical feminist who urged women on to direct action. Men and women will be disturbed and inspired by this movie of the wretched job it was for women to have the right to vote.
