Cine Beaverhausen: Suffragette
While well-received critically, this film is a box-office flop, despite the fact the Meryl Streep and Helena Bonham-Carter are in it.
With nice period detail, the film is about the dawn of the feminist movement. Sadly, it opened mid-December among stiff competition.
In Disney's Mary Poppins, the suffragette movement was made to look like something for dilettante, upper middle-class housewives, but this film tells a quite different story. Distinctly not the Disney version.
This is, in every way, a modern day women's picture, expertly made and I heartily recommend it to my readers ~~ men and women alike.
