  • Meryl Streep's new movie, Suffragette premiered last night at the 59th BFI London Film Festival. See the best look from the red carpet...

    Carey Mulligan attended the New York premiere just three weeks after giving birth to a baby girl. The 30 year looked understated yet elegant in a black prom dress and bright red lipstick to promote her new film.

    The intense and moving film set in 1910 shows what it was really like for working-class women and early members of the British suffrage movement. Following the narrative of Maud (Carey Mulligan) It will be the first film ever to be shot in the Houses of Parliment, with the permission of MPs.

    Here are a few reviews from the Womand & Home team:
    Our Editor, Sue James “I loved this very moving film, the cast are brilliant. The intense way the film was shot manages to magnify the fight, the suffering these women did on our behalf. A must see movie for all women”

    Our November cover star, Meryl Streep also plays a role in the film as Emmeline Pankurst. You can read all about the film and Streep’s portrayal of this iconic woman in our November issue here

    The film is already out in the UK and is due for release later this month in the US.
