An all-star cast of ladies has come together to tell the story of the UK suffragette movement on the silver screen.
Helena Bonham Carter, Carey Mulligan, and Meryl Streep play leading roles in the Women’s Suffrage Movement in the UK as they fought for the right to vote. An important piece of history, the film is inspired by real events, which, based on the trailer, got violent at times.
This movie is very important for many different reasons. First of, it is documenting an important part of the history of women’s rights that many people, particularly younger people, might not know exists. Also, if it a lot of people attend on open weekend, it will make a great profit which will encourage other films with strong female leads about strong women. It’s clear that someone out there is willing to make a movie about these moments and people, and powerful actors want to be involved, so we, as audience members, need to go see these movies if we want to see them in the future.
You can see the full trailer here, and the film comes out in theatres October 23rd.
