The Carrick Cinema Cinema Club gets 2016 off to a great start with a showing of Suffragette on Friday the 22nd of January 2016 from 7pm until 10pm at the Carrick Centre, Maybole.
Suffragette shows women on the front line at the turn of the century, fighting for the right to vote. They are are personified by Maud - an electric performance from Carey Mulligan (Bathsheba in Far from the Madding Crowd). The action depicts the sacrifices of women who were forced underground to pursue a dangerous game of cat and mouse with an increasingly brutal State.
It stars Meryl Streep who provides a delightful cameo as Emmeline Pankhurst, rallying the troops from the balcony before disappearing into the night, Helena Bonham Carter as firebrand chemist Edith Ellyn, Anne-Marie Duff and Ben Wishaw.
