Directed by Sarah Gavron (Brick Lane), Suffragette follows Maud (Carey Mulligan), a young woman who becomes involved with the early feminist movement in the first quarter of the 20th century. Maud and her fellow suffragettes run a campaign to give the right to vote to women in an increasingly brutal male-dominated establishment. In the face of the societal stalemate, the movement is forced underground and turns to radical action to make its voice heard.
