Suffragette Film

I decided some time ago that working six days a week was far too much for any sane person however dedicated and passionate said person may be and as a result Tuesdays is my official day off ( I also have Sunday too!)
Tuesday has become the day I try to do absolutely nothing and allow myself a long lie in and stay in bed as long as I can, watching DVDs, knitting, drinking hot chocolate and eating anything comforting.  Today it was chips in chicken soup with homemade brown bread and butter. Outrageous I hear you cry, but until you try it don't knock it..
The film of choice today was Suffragette starring Carey Mulligan, Helena Bonham Carter, Brendan Gleeson, Anne-Marie Duff and a fleeting glimpse of Meryl Streep.

The film was excellent and extremely gripping and gave a compelling view of how women won the vote.  It gave an incite in to the harrowing treatment of women in the early 1900's and made me very grateful that things have been made a damn sight better because of the suffering of these ladies.
I really enjoyed the film although I was told that it was a little disappointing.  That in mind I wasn't expecting great things.
I would highly recommend it.
