Here’s the latest trailer from Focus Features, for the film Suffragette. I’m immediately drawn to this film, because I’m a history junkie and because this is a moment in history I’m always happy to learn more about. Also? La Streep!
The trailer looks amazing, and it looks like they’re going to dig into the more violent aspects of the fight for Women’s Rights. Because it wasn’t just women pushing strollers down the street wearing “Give Us The Right To Vote Please Thank You”. No way.
Here’s the PR for the film, straight from Focus Features:
In theaters FALL 2015
Director Sarah Gavron’s film starring Carey Mulligan, Helena Bonham Carter, Brendan Gleeson, Anne-Marie Duff, Ben Whishaw, Romola Garai, Natalie Press, and three-time Academy Award winner Meryl Streep, will open in limited release on October 23rd and will be in theaters across the country by Thanksgiving. SUFFRAGETTE is written by Abi Morgan (“The Iron Lady,” “The Hour”) and produced by Alison Owen (“Elizabeth,” “Temple Grandin”) and Faye Ward (“Jane Eyre,” “Dancing on the Edge”).
SUFFRAGETTE is 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. 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.
