SUFFRAGETTE is a British drama, set in 1912 and 1913, that tells the story of the suffragette movement.

Language

There is a single use of strong language ('f**k'). There is also infrequent moderate and mild bad language, including uses of 'bitches' and 'bleeding'.

Violence

In one scene a group of suffragettes at a political rally are attacked by police officers. Women are knocked to the ground, kicked, and struck with truncheons. One woman is seen to have blood on her face.

Disturbing images

In one scene a female prison inmate is force-fed. As the struggling woman is restrained, a rubber tube attached to a funnel is inserted into one of her nostrils and white liquid in poured into the funnel.

Other issues include a scene in which a suffragette is knocked down and killed after colliding with a race horse at the Epsom Derby. The collision is very crunchy but there is no clear sight of blood or injury detail.

There are also scenes of adult cigarette smoking and brief female buttock nudity.
