The Reel Sunday film screening and discussion program returns to the Wilton Library this Sunday, May 15, from 3-5:30 p.m.. Co-sponsored with the Wilton League of Women Voters, this weekend’s event is a screening of Suffragette.

Suffragette is set in early Twentieth Century Britain, and tracks the story of the foot soldiers of the early feminist movement—women who were forced underground to pursue a dangerous game of cat and mouse with an increasingly brutal State. Starring Carey Mulligan and Meryl Streep, the film focuses on working wife and mother Maud Watt’s (Mulligan) engagement with the suffragette movement and how her involvement changes her life forever when she joins a diverse group of women fighting for their rights as the dangers increase, risking their jobs, homes, families and lives. Streep portrays political activist Emmeline Pankhurst.

A post-film discussion will be led by Wilton LWV member Louise Herot. There is no charge to attend, but registration is suggested on the library’s website or by calling 203.762.6334.

Wilton Library is located at 137 Old Ridgefield Rd..
