Edit: Pictures from Telluride’s “Suffragette” premiere have been added to the photo gallery. According to IndieWire, Meryl Streep has attended the first showing of Fox Searchlight’s “Suffragette,” in which Streep delivers a brief but potent cameo as wealthy Emmeline Pankhurst, who led scores of turn-of-the-century British women to fight for the right to vote. “We have been ridiculed and ignored,” Pankhurst cries. “Deeds and sacrifice must be the order of the day.” Carey Mulligan carries this movie as ably as she did “Far from the Madding Crowd.” She plays Maud, a 24-year-old workhorse laundry drudge who is drawn into the suffragette cause by a co-worker (the excellent Anne-Marie Duff) and local pharmacist (Helena Bonham Carter). The harshness of Maud’s daily work life (her shoulder is scarred from past burns), where the factory boss hits on the younger women, contrasts with her cozy life at home with her husband (Ben Whishaw) and young son. But as Mrs. Pankhurst and her well-to-do colleagues urge working women to join the cause as foot soldiers willing to make sacrifices, these women are beaten and harassed by police and husbands alike. Maud’s husband can’t take the neighborhood heat when his wife keeps clocking jail time. (1000 women were imprisoned during the long fight for women’s suffrage.) You can read the complete article here.
