New character one sheets for Suffragette arrive online

Pathe UK have recently released their first batch of character one sheets for Sarah Gavron's (Brick Lane) Suffragette.

Boasting quite the cast – Meryl Streep (The Iron Lady), Carey Mulligan (Never Let Me Go), Helen Bonham Carter (The Kings Speech), Romola Garai (Amazing Grace), Anne-Marie Duff (The Last Station), Brendan Gleeson (In Bruges) and Ben Whishaw (Skyfall) among them – Suffragette follows the struggles of suffragette leader Emmeline Pankhurst (Streep) and the campaigners around her, who lead an early feminist movement to get equality in voting at a time when women were considered ill-mannered to vote.

While their cause was just, it was also not an easy thing to try to turn the giant iceberg that was British politics at the time. The personal cost was great, but the results speak for themselves.

With a script by Abi Morgan (The Iron Lady), Suffragette will be out in the UK on 30 October.
