Did you all get a chance to see the exquisite Carey Mulligan on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert last night? She’s plays the main character, Maude, in the film Suffragette and spoke with Stephen about suffrage and how hard women fought for the vote. They showed a clip of Maude telling a man why they have to fight so hard, and it brought tears to my eyes. I cannot wait to see this film, and I wish I could round up all of of you to see it with me. Because I can’t do that, I thought I’d have a little giveaway instead. Leave a comment for me about what you’re looking forward to seeing in the film or whatever moves you to say. I’ll randomly choose a winner (or two) to receive a copy of A MAD, WICKED FOLLY and some swag.
I had the great fortune of meeting with my friend Helen Pankhurst (Sylvia Pankhurst’s granddaughter) when I was in England in July (she’s an extra as well as one of the expert sources) and she told me all about filming the movie and seeing her family come to life on the set.
So leave me a comment below and I’ll choose a winner on October 27th, which also happens to be my birthday!
Here’s a clip from the movie. I def you not to cry through the entire thing!
