    A Great Historical Account

    I purchased the "Suffragette (DVD) (Digital Copy)" movie because I enjoy movies that cover real historical events. The move is well-done and the acting is very good. At times I found myself asking what would I do in times like that, if I were a woman. The movie makes a great point that change does not come just because you want it to occur; change comes with action and great sacrifice. I wonder how many people are willing to fight for their freedom today and what they would be willing to give up to keep it. Maybe you will be contemplating this when you watch this movie also.

    This movie is excellent. It does a great job of evoking the look and feel of the period in England when the women's suffrage movement escalated its efforts to draw attention to the cause of voting rights for women. The acting is good, the character portrayals very believable, the scenery and costumes realistic, and the plot line is credible and well-done. Although this movie is no substitute for reading history about the English women's suffrage movement, it is a very good example of historical drama that combines good entertainment with reasonable fidelity to history.

    Don't Take the Right To Vote for granted!

    The movie "Suffragette " is an important film (especially for the younger generation , many of whom are unaware of the long struggle by political activists to obtain for women the right to vote). The film focuses on the British suffragist struggle in 1912 and actress CAREY MULLIGAN gives an emotional portrayal of an "average working woman" caught up in the struggle.MERYL STREEP is in the film only briefly but, as she always does, gives a powerful performance,

    This movie makes clear in a very gripping way what agony women in early 20th century England had to go through to get the right to vote. Carey Mulligan does a great job of portraying the personal sacrifices women had to make to get to vote. In fact the movie does a great job of portraying the suppression of all of women's rights in early 20th century England.

    We're women: we're feeble minded, too quick to emotion, and will take your jobs if we get the vote. All ACTUAL reasons stated in the movie on why British women shouldn't have the right to vote. This is an important period in women's rights. I wish 'Iron-Jawed Angels' was still available for sale, then you can get the American Suffragette movement, too.

    Suffragette is a unique and historically presented piece of information that is added to (quite well) for dramatic effect. People in this age sometimes forget what happens in times past and the many struggles that humans have overcome to be modern citizens of the world.

    If you think you have an idea about how woman were treated while they fought for equal rights, guess again. You are in for quite a shock. You will never look at the subject of fighting for equality the same after you enjoy watching this superb movie.
