About the Movie

Academy Award® nominees Carey Mulligan and Helena Bonham Carter, and three-time Academy Award® winner Meryl Streep, lead the cast of a powerful drama about the women who were willing to lose everything in their fight for equality in early-20th-century Britain. The stirring story centers on Maud (played by Carey Mulligan), a working wife and mother whose life is forever changed when she is secretly recruited to join the U.K.'s growing Suffragette movement. Galvanized by the outlaw fugitive Emmeline Pankhurst (Meryl Streep), Maud becomes an activist for the cause alongside women from all walks of life. When increasingly aggressive police action forces Maud and her dedicated fellow Suffragettes underground, they engage in a dangerous game of cat-and-mouse with the authorities, who are shocked as the women's civil disobedience escalates and sparks debate across the nation. Inspired by true events, Suffragette is a moving drama exploring the passion and heartbreak of those who risked all they had for women's right to vote – their jobs, their homes, their children, and even their lives. The film also stars Brendan Gleeson, Anne-Marie Duff, Ben Whishaw, Romola Garai, and Natalie Press. Suffragette is directed by BAFTA Award winner Sarah Gavron from an original screenplay by Abi Morgan.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: The script, by Abi Morgan, filters out the contextual complexities of politics, and Sarah Gavron's direction reduces difficult situations to simple sentiments. – Richard Brody, New Yorker, Nov 2, 2015

Fresh: Mulligan, in particular, delivers, bringing believability to a role that's quite a stretch, given the transformation her character has to go through from workaday mum to first-wave feminist superhero. – Kristin Tillotson, Minneapolis Star Tribune, Nov 5, 2015

Fresh: Mulligan's performance, coupled with a solid script by Abi Morgan, shows us just how much is at stake when a woman decides to wage war. – Julia Cooper, Globe and Mail, Oct 30, 2015

Fresh: Sarah Gavron's film is, amazingly, the first ever to be made about the Suffragettes. – James Mottram, South China Morning Post, Apr 6, 2016

Great Movie

This was a great movie that showcased those who suffered and worked so hard to get the rights movement started for women.

Terrible. Wants to be meaningful, but isn't.

Just another chance for Meryl to feel like she has a cause. Focus on movies, not politics, your craft is based on an ability to act, not because you're insightful politically by nature.

Great Movie to Sleep To

If you were expecting a good Meryl Streep movie then you will be greatly disappointed. Misleading and boring.
