Pathé has set an October 30th UK Cinema release for Suffragette, directed by Sarah Gavron from a script written by Abi Morgan. Meanwhile, Focus Features had dated it for a US theater release on October 23rd in New York and Los Angeles, expanding October 30 and November 6 to additional cities.
Inspired by true events, the film also stars Ben Whishaw, Anne-Marie Duff, Brendan Gleeson, Romola Garai, and Natalie Press.
Watch the Suffragette trailers (there are two versions, loved the first one, which you'll see below...I think it's the US version with a few more very intense scenes!), read the official synopsis, and see some trailer screen caps of CM below...

featuring Carey Mulligan as Maud
Here's the official synopsis for Suffragette:
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.
