About the Film
Suffragette is an intense 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. Fighting for the right to vote, these women were not only from the genteel educated classes, there were working women among them 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 was one such foot soldier. The story of her fight for dignity is both heart-breaking and inspirational.
This is an excellent movie, very intense and emotional. Please watch!!
Engaging and Thoughtful Film
An eye opening film about the hell women had to go through to get the right to vote. An emotional and well made film.
This is incredible. I don't normally cry at films, but this one has me sobbing. It is so moving and so powerful, *spoilers* especially at the end when we see real footage of the suffragettes. This really is a must see film, end of.
