The opening film of 2015’s London Film Festival by British Jewish director Sarah Gavron. A thrilling drama about the foot soldiers of the early feminist movement, forced into a dangerous game of cat and mouse with an increasingly brutal state. Radicalised and turning to violence, they were willing to lose everything in the fight for equality – their jobs, their homes, their children, and their lives. A stellar cast featuring Meryl Streep, Carey Mulligan, and Helena Bonham Carter.

“Suffragette comes cloaked in respectability, but the fire in its belly is hot and real.”
The Daily Telegraph review

“The British suffragettes finally get a film they deserve.”
