Film review: Suffragette

A cinematic tour de force, Suffragette will have your heart pounding from beginning to end, such is the stirring atmosphere of the women’s movement in 1912 depicted in this moving story of the fight to win ‘Votes for women!’.

With stunning performances by Carey Mulligan and supporting cast Helena Bonham Carter, Anne-Marie Duff and a rousing cameo from Meryl Streep as Emmeline Pankhurst, expect an emotional journey of goosebumps, incredulous rage, to deep depair and heartwarming admiration, as the women’s liberation movement’s heroic journey of last century is brought to life in 2015.

It’s hard to believe anyone waited this long to tell the suffragettes’ story on the big screen, and it’s an inspiring reminder of how far we have come, what it truly meant to the women who fought for the cause then, and what it means to women living today.

This film is a must-see for all.

Suffragette, directed by Sarah Gavron, is in cinemas now. Watch the trailer here
