Ingenious Media: Suffragette receives rave reviews
We are pleased to report that Suffragette, produced by the first Ingenious Pathé Film fund, is receiving fantastic reviews both by critics and moviegoers alike.
Starring Meryl Streep, Carey Mulligan and Helena Bonham-Carter, this moving biopic traces the story of the foot soldiers of the early feminist movement as they fought for their right to vote.
Read some of the recent reviews:
‘It’s written, shot and acted with a hot-blooded urgency that reminds you the struggle it depicts is an ongoing one – and which shakes up this most well-behaved of genres with a surge of civil disobedience.’
‘The surprise of Suffragette is how much anger and urgency it contains, and how much new material it unearths.’
‘a vibrant, vigorous movie…Suffragette blazes with a fire that cannot be denied’
‘Carey Mulligan gives an affecting, skilfully modulated performance that lends a certain coherence to this assemblage of real-life incidents, composite characters, noble sentiments, stirring speeches and impeccable production values — all marshalled in service of a picture whose politics prove rather more commendable than its artistry.’
‘a valuable, vital film about how human rights are won’
After opening the London Film Festival on 7 October, the film was released in the UK on 12 October and is now on limited release in the US with wider release happening over the coming weeks.
