Suffragette (PG-13) 107 minutes

Suffragette  Movie (PG-13)  Galvanized by outlaw fugitive Emmeline (Meryl Streep), Maud (Carey Mulligan) joins the U.K.'s growing Suffragette movement alongside women from all walks of life for the right to vote. A powerful drama, inspired by true events, tracking the story of the foot soldiers of the early feminist movement. Women, not primarily from the genteel educated classes, but working women who had seen peaceful protest achieve nothing, are radicalized and willing to lose everything. They sacrificed their jobs, homes, children-–and even their lives in their fight for equality in early-20th-century Britain. The story of Maud’s fight for dignity is as gripping and visceral as any thriller, as well as heart breaking and inspirational.
