Watch: Meryl Streep, Carey Mulligan in ‘Suffragette’ First Trailer

“Never surrender, never give up the fight,” Meryl Streep tells Carey Mulligan in the first trailer for their upcoming drama “Suffragette.”

The film, which is inspired by true events, explores Britain’s long and violent journey toward granting women the right to vote in the early 20th century. Directed by Sarah Gavron, “Suffragette” reunites Streep with her “Iron Lady” screenwriter Abi Morgan.

The intense drama, which also stars Helena Bonham Carter, centers on Maud (Mulligan), a working wife and mother whose life is upended when she joins the U.K.’s growing suffragette movement, which heads underground following increased police aggression.

“Suffragette” will open the 59th BFI London Film Festival on October 7. It hits theaters on October 23 and expands nationwide by Thanksgiving.
