Carey Mulligan has a very busy 2015 ahead of her and Suffragette is just one of the movies that we are going to see her star in.



Suffragette marks the return of Sarah Gavron to the director's chair for her first live action feature film since the release of Brick Lane back in 2007. The movie sees her team up with Abi Morgan, who is back on writing duties.

Morgan has penned scripts for Shame, The Iron Lady and most recently The Invisible Woman as well as TV series The Hour and Birdsong - she is fast becoming one of the most in demand screenwriters.

Suffragette explores the early days of the feminist movement and the brand new teaser trailer for the film has arrived.

A terrific cast has been assembled as Mulligan is joined by Helen Bonham Carter, Romola Garai, Anne-Marie Dugg, Ben Whishaw, Brendan Gleeson, and Meryl Streep as Emmeline Pankhurst.

Suffragette is an intense drama that tracks the story of the foot soldiers of the early feminist movement as they fought for the right to vote, 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. Radicalised 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.

The character of Maud, played by Carey Mulligan, is one such foot soldier. The story of her fight for dignity is both heart-breaking and inspirational.

Suffragette is already being tipped as one of the possible early contenders - but we are going to have to wait until October before the film hits the big screen.

Suffragette is released 30th October.
