Suffragette | Ratings & Reviews

"The tale of one woman’s brave stand against injustice, Suffragette is a gruelling history lesson, alleviated by flashes of heartache and humour. We follow fictional protagonist Maud Watts (Carey Mulligan), from humble early 20th Century London laundress, wife, and mother, to fully fledged suffragette, committing acts of civil disobedience in a bid to achieve voting rights and fair pay for women."

Flicks, Adam FrescoFlicks

"A picture whose politics prove rather more commendable than its artistry."

VarietyVariety

"Writer Abi Morgan ('Shame', 'The Iron Lady') and director Sarah Gavron's ('Brick Lane') tough, raw, bleak-looking film makes the suffragettes' dilemma feel immediate and real."

Time OutTime Out

"Written, shot and acted with a hot-blooded urgency that reminds you the struggle it depicts is an ongoing one..."

The TelegraphThe Telegraph

"Stirring and cleareyed - the best kind of history lesson."

The New York TimesThe New York Times

"Director Sarah Gavron does well to galvanize her story with a degree of urgency: the result of swift, assured camerawork and a brilliantly understated performance by Carey Mulligan."

The GuardianThe Guardian

"Makes a case for the historic importance of these renegade women, who launched the first wave of feminism, but you may wish the stirring narrative wasn't so streamlined."

The AgeThe Age

"Though ably acted and indisputably on the side of the angels, "Suffragette" as directed by Sarah Gavron is more dead-on earnest and schematic than it needs to be."

Los Angeles TimesLos Angeles Times

"This would've made for a great TV serial."

Little White LiesLittle White Lies

"The surprise of Suffragette is how much anger and urgency it contains, and how much new material it unearths."

Hollywood ReporterHollywood Reporter

"A wonderfully involving, moving Carey Mulligan and the spirited ensemble around her flesh out a handsomely crafted, timely look at why and how far people are willing to go for a cause."
