Suffragette Dramatizes Struggle for Women's Rights

Interesting upcoming release that I thought was worth highlighting here, especially given that this is Emmeline Pankhurst Day in the U.K. (named for the activist who led that country's struggle to give women the right to vote). The film is Suffragette, directed by Sarah Gavron (who made a wonderful little movie called Brick Lane in 2007), and it stars Carey Mulligan, Helena Bonham Carter, and Meryl Streep as Pankhurst. All three actresses are powerhouses on their own, so I fully expect this will be one to watch. Watch the trailer below, and look for Suffragette to hit theaters Stateside this October.
