Suffragette Trailer: “War’s The Only Language Men Listen To”

Focus Features has released the first trailer for the upcoming British drama, ‘Suffragette’ starring Carey Mulligan & Meryl Streep. In theaters this October, the film should put award focus on both Mulligan & the already three-time Oscar winner Meryl Streep.

Inspired by true events within the women’s rights movement at the turn of the 20th-century in England, ‘Suffragette’ centers on a normal working women – turned activist named Maud (Carey Mulligan). Maud is inspired by the celebrated and controversial, real life activist and leader of the British movement, Emmeline Pankhurst (Streep). Noted for using arson and physical attacks as tactics to get their message across, the group risked jail time and their lives before finally seeing the law changed.

It’s a film that could spark some emotional award speeches early next year, especially in light of the recent focus on equal pay among women. Peter Schlessel, CEO of Focus Features said in a recent statement concerning the movie, “SUFFRAGETTE is a story that will resonate with men and women across the generations; it is about parents and children, courage and dedication, and making hard choices. Sarah, Abi, Alison and Faye are women who represent an amazing convergence of filmmaking talent. We’re proud to partner with Pathé to bring this powerful drama to audiences worldwide.”

The Sarah Gavron directed film has a strong cast of great actors that also includes, Helena Bonham Carter, Ben Whishaw and Brendan Gleeson. Which is one of the big draws watching the official trailer (See below).
