Suffragette Film October 2015!


I have been eagerly awaiting the trailer for the Suffragette film due out this October and wow was it ever worth the wait. I  have watched them three times now and I have cried each time. Give Carey Mulligan the Oscar now!




A who's who of British (and Irish and American) actors are in this. Carey Mulligan, Meryl Streep, Helena Bonham Carter, Anne-Marie Duff, Romola Garai, Ben Whishaw, Brendan Gleeson and Samuel West to name just a few!

I have never printed quotes before a film was released but here they are!

**********************************************************

Male voice over: Women should not exercise judgement in political affairs.

Male voice over: If we allow women to vote it will mean the loss of social structure.

Man: You work at the Glass House Laundry?
Maud (Carey Mulligan): I was born there. Part time washer from when I was 7, full time from when I was 12."

Mrs. Pankhurst (Meryl Streep): For 50 years we have laboured peacefully to secure the note for women. We've been ridiculed, battered and ignored.

Maud: All my life I've been respectful. Done what men told me. Well I can't have that anymore.

Maud: We break windows. We burn things. Cause war's the only language men listen to.

Maud: What are you going to do? Lock us all up? We're in every home. We're half the human race. You can't stop us all.

Judge: What would the vote mean to you?

Mrs. Pankhurst: Never underestimate the power we women have to define our own destiny. We have been left with no alternative. Defy this government!

Mrs. Pankhurst: We don't want to be law breakers. We want to be law makers!"

Edith New (Helena Bonham Carter): The only way is forward!

Violet Cambridge (Anne-Marie Duff): Votes for women!

Alice (Romola Garai): The power is in your hands!


Join me watching this in October. And bring your mother, daughter, friend and spouse!

  1. From Big Sister:

    I can't wait to see this film either! I really hope that it's the push that all women need to exercise the hard-fought right to vote … we have an obligation to all of the women who fought so diligently for the rights that we have today.

    "Our daughters' daughters will adore us, as they sing in grateful chorus:
    Well done, Sister Suffragette!" (from Mary Poppins).

    C'mon October!

    1. High hopes! Looking forward to Florence Foster Jenkins with Meryl Streep as the worst opera singer in the world (with Hugh Grant as her husband) and also A Walk in the Woods with Emma Thompson as the wife of Bill Bryson as played by Robert Redford. So many films to see! Whee!

  2. I cannot wait for this film... I feel I will be in teats the whole time but also elated as well. So many feels as good dramas should be.

    By the way nice Mary Poppins reference.

    1. Hi Blaire! Glad you are looking forward to the Suffragette film as well. "We're sister soldiers in petticoats, shoulder to shoulder for women's votes. Though we adore men individually, we agree that as a group they're rather stu-pid!" LOL!

  3. Wow, I cried also. Maud: We break windows. We burn things. Cause war's the only language men listen to.

    Maud: What are you going to do? Lock us all up? We're in every home. We're half the human race. You can't stop us all.

    War is the only.... - so true - look at history!
