Genre: Drama, History
This is a truly great film that has to be watched at least once (everyone not just the ladies 😛 ). The acting is superb within this film, everyone suited the period and Cary Mulligan was excellent. She created a character that was liable, emotional, you could connect to her and she kept you captivated 🙂 . Helena Bonham Carter and the rest of the main female cast also created believable characters. The story, as much as parts of it are fictional (just around the character of Maud Watts), keeps true to real life and is harrowing. It is a shocker to see what happened, you want them to win and has emotional / surprising scenes. The film truly gets interesting when the suffragettes actually start to be “disobedient” and the ending is my favourite part 😀 . I liked how true the film directors were to the real incidents and the use of real footages. Parts of the film probably should have been more heart wrenching, captivating or focus on more as I did notice how long the film was. This would suggest that I wasn’t completely enthralled but the narrative and acting win highly with what they are highlighting. This film may not be everyone’s cup of tea (if you don’t like gritty period films) but I do recommend at least watching this once. Enjoy 😀 !
I give this film 4 Stars out of 5!
