Suffagette to release 3 weeks earlier; New poster arrives

We’ve just been informed by Pathe that the Meryl Streep, Carey Mulligan and Helena Bonham Carter led film Suffragette, will release three weeks earlier in the UK on 12th October. This date is the first Monday following the film’s European Premiere as the Opening Night of the BFI London Film Festival on 7 October 2015.

Suffragette is directed by Sarah Gavron (Brick Lane), written by Abi Morgan (The Iron Lady), and produced by Faye Ward and Alison Owen (Saving Mr Banks).    

The film, which is hotly tipped for this year’s awards season, tells the story of the ordinary British women at the turn of the last century who risked everything in the fight for equality and the right to vote.

With the announcement of the new release, we can also bring you a brand new UK poster for the film, which you can see below.

SUFFRAGETTE is an intense drama that tracks the story of the foot soldiers of the early feminist movement as they fought for the right to vote, women who were forced underground to pursue a dangerous game of cat and mouse with an increasingly brutal State. These women were not primarily from the genteel educated classes, they were working women who had seen peaceful protest achieve nothing. Radicalised and turning to violence as the only route to change, they were willing to lose everything in their fight for equality – their jobs, their homes, their children and their lives. The character of Maud, played by Carey Mulligan, is one such foot soldier. The story of her fight for dignity is both heart-breaking and inspirational.
