Carey Mulligan gives a wonderful performance in this engaging and well-made movie about a very important and controversial time.

"Suffragette's greatest achievement is that it gives a full-blooded picture of a struggle not so far removed in time, and still going forth in some corners of the world today."

"Revives history we could all stand to know better, and proves most useful in clarifying both what was at stake and the rules of the game..."

"Based on real events a century ago that still resonate loudly today, this movie takes a cleverly fictionalised angle to explore the suffrage movement, a story that astonishingly has never been put on film before."

"Mulligan turns in a strong performance, going from a woman who has quietly resigned herself to a certain life to a woman who is willing to speak out for others. It's a transition that comes slowly, and it feels real."

"Heartbreaking and powerfully relevant."
