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

This movie was dramatic and moving. Especially when I considered that most of the characters and situations were based on real women. I love that the movie ends on a scene that leads into a newsreel of an actual historical event that drew attention to the suffragist campaign. These women fought and suffered for women everywhere to get the right to vote. Every girl and woman should see this movie.

Amazing movie

I was touched by the strength, courage and passion of these women. True, we certainly have to push harder for complete equality. Looking back it is hard to believe that at one time, a woman, such as myself, had so little to call upon in order to acquire simple human rights.

This movie was very well written. Acting was fantastic. And, it certainly grabbed my attention. Worth the rental/purchase.

Our DAUGHTERS need to Know This History

In the last election I went down to my local school house to vote and was asked by a teacher who had a group of teen-agers with her if they could observe my process of voting {not watching my actual vote ~ just the process}. I said yes, and after I placed my ballot in the box, I told the girls that it is very important for women to vote as we did not always have that right. The female teacher held up her hand and said, “We don’t tell them about that!” And I said, “WHAT? That’s HISTORY and a pretty RELEVANT fact of history.” She said that it didn’t matter now and that they didn’t want to “stir things up.” I told the girls to watch Iron Jawed Angels {the movie} to find out what the school wasn’t willing to reveal. I couldn’t believe it. Our daughters do not know. Let’s help them {and overselves my fellow Sisters} to be Full in our Empowerment. In our lives. It’s a Big Deal. ~ Love to the process and to you all...
