Micro movie review

Suffragette: Set in pre-World War I Britain, it's the story of a working class woman who accidentally becomes involved with the movement for the right of women to vote, as it turns to violence from peaceful protest. Her eyes are opened and she joins in, at great personal cost. The film is slow, and fairly predictable (at least if you know something about the suffragette movement in Britain). Carrie Mulligan, as the laundry worker main character, is excellent. Helena Bonham Carter is fair. Meryl Streep's part was so small it was almost non-existent.
