The fierce young suffragettes in 1912, fighting for a Constitutional amendment guaranteeing women the right to vote, are treated with sexy exuberance. Brainy Alice Paul (Hilary Swank) and cheeky Alice Burns (Frances O’Conner) portray the women who mobilized a defiant vanguard that gave Congress a run for its money. With an effusive pop score, restless camera, and vibrant palette, German filmmaker Katja von Garnier tells a classic American tale of the sacrifice and bloodshed that helped ensure women a voice in the political system. 2003, U.S., color, 35mm, 125 minutes.
