"Suffragette," directed by Sarah Gavron

Movie, 2015

Really solid, likeable, worthy though somehow flat film about the women’s suffrage movement leading up to Emily Davison throwing herself in front of the King’s horse on derby Day. There was, however, a lack of a spark in the telling of the story, as if any disrespecting of the narrative or misrepresentation of any of the characters would have caused the movie to collapse into itself. So, a little plodding in places. A good film overall and a good way of finding out about the movement, just perhaps a little ‘safe’ and ‘staid’.
