SuffragetteBanner

Voting matters as Pathe has revealed the first teaser trailer for high-stakes historical drama Suffragette, starring Oscar nominee Carey Mulligan (An Education, The Great Gatsby). Check it out below!

The story, inspired by the early-20th-century campaign by the suffragettes for the right of women to vote, centers on Maud (played by Mulligan), a working wife and mother who comes to realize that she must fight for her dignity both at home and in her workplace. Realizing that she is not alone, she becomes an activist alongside other brave women from all walks of life. The early efforts at resistance were passive but as the women faced increasingly aggressive police action, the suffragettes become galvanized – risking their very lives to ensure that women’s rights would be recognized and respected.

Suffragette co-stars Helena Bonham Carter, Brendan Gleeson, Anne-Marie Duff, Ben Whishaw and Meryl Streep as Emmeline Pankhurst. The film is directed by Sarah Gavron (Brick Lane) from a screenplay by Abi Morgan (The Iron Lady), and produced by Ruby Films’ Alison Owen and Faye Ward.

Focus Features will open Suffragette in the U.S. on October 23 in limited release, while the film opens nationwide in the UK on October 30.
