Dir: Sarah Gavron
Starring: Helena Bonham Carter and Meryl Streep
A young working mother in 1912 London gets caught up in the women’s suffrage movement
This historical drama was based largely on real facts and was well received for successfully dramatizing an important, and still painfully relevant, period of history. There is a ‘train journey’ to Tattenham Corner at the end of the film, taking suffragettes to the 1913 Derby, but as yet it is not known what this involves.
