Not as powerful as a movie of this nature should be, but nevertheless stands to be topical.

Suffragette is one of those historical dramas that draws from a rich subject matter and is clearly enthusiastic about it. But it alternates between a rosy romanticizing of historical events and grim realism that never quite meshes well together. This makes it hard to root for the female activists as their actions become increasingly more violent. The cast is good. Carey Mulligan and Helena Bonham Carter are fine as the protagonists. Meryl Streep's appearance is basically a cameo. Rip-off.

While I thought Suffragette wasn't bad or Oscar bait as I expected it to be, but it is an average movie that I won't be re-watching. Carey Mulligan gave a strong and brilliant performance, so did Helena Bonham Carter. I think it's great to fight for your own rights, but I wish it didn't feel forced and cliche as this movie presents it. The Oscar wining Meryl Streep is barely in this movie which is a real shame, because shes in the freaking poster and the trailer for the film basically fools you into thinking shes in the whole movie.
