I wasn't looking forward to seeing 'Suffragette' expecting it to be heavy going and perhaps turgid.
As it turns out this film which focuses on a group of women who became drawn into the suffragette movement in Britain in the early twentieth century seeking the vote for women and some equality of rights with men is a solid drama detailing matter of factly the inequity of women's lives and the class barriers of the time.
It is a fight that is not over to this day, a fact alluded to in the end credits. All classes and groups of discriminated against individuals would connect with this film.
