Suffragette full movie review - "...accomplished..."
English director Sarah Gavron's second feature film which was written by Welsh playwright and screenwriter Abi Morgan, is inspired by real events which took place in the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland (1801-1922) in the early 20th century.
It premiered in the United States, was shot on locations in England and is a UK production which was produced by producers Alison Owen and Faye Ward. It tells the story about an ordinary English daughter named Maud Watts who works at a glasshouse laundry in Bethnal Green, London, England.
Distinctly and precisely directed by English filmmaker Sarah Gavron, this quietly paced and somewhat fictional tale which is narrated by and mostly from the protagonist's point of view, draws a generational portrayal of a former head washer whom after acquainting a co-worker named Violet and an organizer named Edith gradually starts to recognize her self-respect. While notable for its distinctly atmospheric and realistic milieu depictions, reverent cinematography by cinematographer Edu Grau, production design by production designer Alice Normington and costume design by costume designer Jane Petrie, this character-driven and narrative-driven story about equal worth and something an English journalist termed as ... ..., was made more than four centuries after women from a Radical Protestant movement which was initiated in Zurich, Switzerland in the 16th century who called themselves Levellers were contemptuously dismissed as ..., ..., ... ... and ... ... when they petitioned for peace and the completion of a 17th century painting called "Venus at Her Mirror", more than three centuries after the first Unitarian Church was founded in England, more than a century after an English advocate for mothers' rights named Caroline Elizabeth Sarah Sheridan Norton (1808-1877) wrote in a letter to the Queen: "I believe in my obscurer position that I am permitted to be the example on which a particular law shall be reformed." the passing of The Custody of Infants Acts (1839), a book regarding a wife called "Angel in the House" (1854) was published, the Marriage and Divorce Bill (1855), the Divorce and Matrimonial Causes Act (1857), the Elementary Education Act (1870), an English attorney named Richard Pankhurst (1835/36-1898) drafted a bill which resulted in the first Married Women's Property Act (1870), an English master of words with a male pseudonym wrote: "? Never to be fully possessed by what we behold, never to have our consciousness rapturously transformed into the vividness of a thought ? always to be scholarly and uninspired ?" (1871), a fourteen-year-old girl named Emmeline witnessed a lecture by an English editorial writer named Lydia Ernestine Becker (1827-1890), the University of London became the first English university to grant women with degrees (1878), the Rational Dress Society was founded, the Bryant and May match factory worker's strike, the first meeting of the Womanhood Suffrage League of New South Wales took place in the home of an English-Australian journalist named Dorothy Frances Montefiore (1851-1933) in Sydney, Australia and the founding of the Independent Labour Party (1893).
Made more than a century after an Irish poet named Eva Selina Laura Gore-Booth (1870-1926) assembled signatures, an English advocate for moral equality named Teresa Bilington-Greig (1877-1964) who thought that the adoption of violence would condemn many women to personal sacrifice that in some cases amounts to suicide, and in all cases to suffering of terrible strain and much possible abuse said: "I do not believe that the best avenue for the enfranchisement of women is through ? personal tyranny and fanaticism." an English composer and Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire wrote a unison song called "The March of the Women", an Austrian-born English militant known by the pseudonym Jane Warton was force-fed whilst on hunger strike, someone wrote the lyrics: "March, women, march! While free and brave your ? banners float and wave; the ? bends benignantly ? March, women, march to Victory." a day called Black Friday (1910) took place, the Morning Post, regarding a radical Votes for Women advocate named Emily Wilding Davison (1872-1913) who experienced the Holloway Prison and gave her life, wrote: "?The horse knocked her down and then turned a complete somersault?" an American-English politician named Nancy Witcher Langhorne, Viscountess Astor (1869-1974) became the first woman to sit in parliament, a Welsh first female president of the Institute of Directors (1903) named Margaret Haig Thomas, Viscountess Rhondda (1883-1958) founded a pressure group where a Dame with the surname Brittain volunteered called The Six Point Group who petitioned for satisfactory legislation on child assault, for the widowed mother, the unmarried mother and her child, equal pay for teachers and equal opportunities for men and women in the civil service, almost a century after an English mill worker named Annie Kenney (1879-1953) wrote: "? Work, and sleep to prepare us for more work, was the unwritten ..." an American nurse named Annie Fox (1893-1987) became the first female recipient of the Purple Heart Medal, the same year as an English girl band, called TRILLS sang: "? oh freedom hear our battle cry we can turn the tide ?" where an authentic English theatre and film actress with the middle name Hannah utters the written words: "What are you gonna do? Lock us all up? We're in every home, we're half the human race. You can't stop us all." this white dove depicts a heartrendingly inspirational study of character and contains a great and timely score by composer Alexandre Desplat.
This historic acknowledgment of soldiers who changed the course of history which is set in England in the early 20th century almost a century after a Scottish author wrote: "? This apparently noble and virtuous self-renunciation in practice usually involves a most criminal self-extinction." where a laundress joins an international women's movement whom is struggling for Suffragium, is impelled and reinforced by its cogent narrative structure, substantial character development, rhythmic continuity, comment by Maud: "?Yours sincerely." and the persevering acting performance by English actress Carey Mulligan. An accomplished narrative feature.
