In The Home  •  New Release Suffragette

★★★★★ Suffragette is a piece of living history, a celebration of how far we’ve come but also a stark reminder that, despite the best efforts of these pioneering women, we still have some distance left to go.

Nikki Baughan – The List

★★★★ A valuable, vital film about how human rights are won.

Peter Bradshaw – The Guardian

SUFFRAGETTE is a thrilling drama that tracks the story of the foot soldiers of the early feminist movement, women who were forced underground to pursue a dangerous game of cat and mouse with an increasingly brutal State. These women were not primarily from the genteel educated classes, they were working women who had seen peaceful protest achieve nothing. Radicalised and turning to violence as the only route to change, they were willing to lose everything in their fight for equality - their jobs, their homes, their children and their lives. Maud (Carey Mulligan) was one such foot soldier. The story of her fight for dignity is as gripping and visceral as any thriller, it is also heart-breaking and inspirational.
