“Written, shot and acted with a hot-blooded urgency that reminds you the struggle it depicts is an ongoing one” –Daily Telegraph In the great fight for dignity and equality Maude Watts, played here by the luminous Carey Mulligan (Great Gatsby, An Education, etc.), was a foot-soldier in the early feminist movement. ‘Votes for women’ was the rallying call. The suffragettes, led in part by Emmeline Pankhurst, wonderfully embodied in this gripping and visceral film by multi Oscar winning Meryl Streep, led the way in a game of cat-and-mouse with an increasingly brutal state. This heartbreaking and inspirational film is as exciting as any thriller with performances from the cream of British acting talent: Helena Bonham Carter, Ben Wishaw, Anne-Marie Duff and Romola Garai lead a huge cast that does splendid justice to this heroic period in our history.
