This year, awards season will have a bit of fighting spirit in the shape of “Suffragette.” As the title makes clear, this film tackles the story of the battle for women’s rights, and with a starry cast, and fiery dramatic material, it will be looking to make a mark. Following the film’s premiere at the Telluride Film Festival, the first clip has arrived.
Carey Mulligan, Helena Bonham Carter, Brendan Gleeson, Anne-Marie Duff, Ben Whishaw, Romola Garai, and Meryl Streep star in the picture about the early days of the feminist movement in England, where working class women battled for the right to vote. You can see the intensity in this clip where Mulligan refuses to back down.
“Suffragette” opens on October 23rd. Watch below.
