As previously reported, “Suffragette” has opened yesterday’s BFI London Film Festival. There has been a lot of bad press towards the film (not to confuse with actual critics who have seen and enjoyed the film) and online hysteria regarding the Time Out London photoshoot, and I’m going to write more about it this weekend (or probably just ignore it), but for now, let’s celebrate the film’s premiere with pictures from the photocall, press conference and premiere. There’s more to come, so check back soon.

A first clip of Meryl Streep portraying Emmeline Pankhurst in “Suffragette” has been released. In the brief clip, which also features Suffragette’s leading lady Carey Mulligan, Pankhurst speaks from the balcony to a large group of followers about equality, saying, “We don’t want to be lawbreakers, we want to be lawmakers”. The clip can be found in the video archive. Many thanks to Joan for the heads-up.

Streep stars as Ricki Rendazzo, a guitar heroine who made a world of mistakes as she followed her dreams of rock n roll stardom. Returning home, Ricki gets a shot at redemption and a chance to make things right as she faces the music with her family.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Paramount has nabbed Stephen Frear’s Florence Foster Jenkins starring Meryl Streep and Hugh Grant. The project was shopped to buyers at TIFF. The film is a Pathe and BBC Films presentation with the participation of Canal Plus and Cine Plus of a Qwerty Films Production. Paramount will distribute the film in the U.S., and Pathe will release the film in the U.K. and France. The film is the true story Foster Jenkins (Streep), a New York heiress and socialite who pursued her dream of becoming a great opera singer. The voice she heard in her head was beautiful, but to everyone else it was hilariously awful. Her “husband” and manager, St. Clair Bayfield (Grant), an aristocratic English actor, was determined to protect his beloved Florence from the truth. But when Florence decided to give a public concert at Carnegie Hall in 1944, St. Clair knew he faced his greatest challenge.
