Hey guys! Horrorella here...
Remember in MARY POPPINS when Mr. Banks would get all pissy with his wife engaging in the fight for women's right to vote? I'm guessing he wouldn't have liked this much either, and these women are going after it much more than Mrs. Banks ever did.
SUFFRAGETTE tells the story of the early days of the feminist movement, as working class women struggled (and kicked ass) for voting rights in England.
SUFFRAGETTE is an intense drama that tracks the story of the foot soldiers of the early feminist movement as they fought for the right to vote, women who were forced underground to pursue a dangerous game of cat and mouse with an increasingly brutal State. These women were not primarily from the genteel educated classes, they were working women 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. The character of Maud, played by Carey Mulligan, is one such foot soldier. The story of her fight for dignity is both heart-breaking and inspirational.
The film opens on October 23rd. Check out the new U.S. and International trailer below.
