Cine Beaverhausen: Suffragette

The dawning of the equal rights movement for women is detailed in the movie 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.
