Full SUFFRAGETTE Trailer Has Arrived

Anne-Marie Duff Carey Mulligan

Focus Features has revealed the full Suffragette trailer, which shows how hard it was to be a part of a dangerous game of cat and mouse with an increasingly brutal State.

Sarah Gavron‘s (Brick Lane) political period drama stars Carey Mulligan, Helena Bonham Carter and three-time Academy Award winner Meryl Streep as women fighting for equality in early-20th-century Britain.

Penned by Abi Morgan, the star-studded drama inspired by true events opens in New York and Los Angeles October 23rd and will expand through Thanksgiving. The film also stars Brendan Gleeson, Anne-Marie Duff, Ben Whishaw, Romola Garai, and Natalie Press.

This might be the first that Streep might be out-nominated by her co-star. Check out the full-length trailer below.

SUFFRAGETTE is a thrilling drama that tracks the story of the foot soldiers of the early feminist movement, 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. Radicalized 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. MAUD was one such foot soldier. The story of her fight for dignity is as gripping and visceral as any thriller, it is also heart-breaking and inspirational.
