Suffragette: Review

Suffragette, the story of the hard working females of the feminist movement. They are forced to take their movement underground in a dangerous game to elude the law, and those against them. In trying to secure rights for woman, and secure the vote, they put themselves, their families and homes at risk.

The story follows one such soldier, Maud (Carey Mulligan) on this journey, and all the has to endure and everything she loses, in the pursuit.

With the rest of the cast including names such as Helena Bonham Carter (as Edith Ellyn) and Meryl Streep (as Emmeline Pankhurst), there is no doubt audiences will be treated to top class performances, and be totally sucked in by the drama, siding with the cause, and feeling the tension as these foot soldiers encounter opposition.

Suffragette is a endearing story, sharing a part of history that many do not know about, or have forgotten. Paced just right, to avoid the viewers interest swaying, and building just enough tension, it is an enjoyable story.

A story well worth a watch, and one to keep you occupied on a quiet evening. Suffragette opens a lot later than the rest of the world, on 15 January 2016.
