Overall, Suffragette is compelling, emotive filmmaking with [Carey] Mulligan delivering a standout performance.

It's hard to believe that dropping our opinions into a ballot box, something we do so casually, took so much ink, blood, and screaming to accomplish. But it did.
August 30, 2019
It is a failed movie because it relies too much on the strength of the story it tells without providing it the necessary support. [Full Review in Spanish]

On a subject this vital, at a time when women's rights here in America seem under assault more now than in recent memory, I not only would have excused an exclamation point, I badly wanted one.

Suffragette is inspirational, important and must-see.
April 19, 2019
Although not a hopeful film Suffragette is inspirational nonetheless, portraying the sacrifices made as women were pushed toward vandalism for want of a better alternative, in a no-nonsense fashion.

Maud is just as dull and unimaginative as the film is, which is a shame, because the real-life figures in this fight were never boring.

The British suffragettes of the early 20th century deserve a more honest, grounded depiction than that, and that's what director Sarah Gavron and writer Abi Morgan deliver. Their version of the suffragette movement is violent, thrilling and dirty.

Suffragette paints an interesting portrait of an extremely important historical time, but it's so in-your-face that the point is almost lost amidst the flotsam and jetsam of its melodrama.

It may not have the emotional impact it aims for, but it is still powerful in its own right, thanks largely in part to Carey Mulligan.
December 10, 2018
It's disappointing that a movie made by women and starring some of the best working actresses tackling a large subject couldn't add more to the conversation.
December 10, 2018
The backlash against Suffragette for white-washing history, and against the cast for being tone-deaf, is unfortunate but not unwarranted. The movie is good, but not good enough to rise above its own prejudices.
August 28, 2018
So why am I so lukewarm on Suffragette? In short, it just doesn't add up.
August 27, 2018
[Director Sarah] Gavron, who is also a documentary filmmaker, knows how to reflect the disputes between women and men, and also between themselves. [Full review in Spanish]
August 22, 2018
It's a film made by women, about women, but to be viewed by all.
August 22, 2018
With outstanding performances from Mulligan and Gleeson, it's an emotional and historically significant film that pulls you into the era.
August 10, 2018
The movie agrees with its characters, which is refreshing; and politics are debated only through the viewpoint of the women's experiences.

... if you're looking for inspiration, education or a quality cinematic experience, look no further than here.
April 23, 2018
An education for all and an involving drama besides, Gavron's film catches the spirit of tumultuous times.
January 11, 2018
The result is ultimately a string of events, not a work whose cinematic momentum builds up beyond the hackneyed feel of British period dramas and television shows. There is too much story in Suffragette, told in a direct, rather dull cinematic fashion.
