Film Pathe International's website has been updated with an official publicity shot for Suffragette ...

And a new synopsis:
"SUFFRAGETTE is a thrilling drama that 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. These women were not primarily from the genteel educated classes, they were working women who had seen peaceful protest achieve nothing. Radicalized and turning to violence as the only route to change, they were willing to lose everything in their fight for equality - their jobs, their homes, their children and their lives. MAUD was one such foot soldier. The story of her fight for dignity is as gripping and visceral as any thriller, it is also heart-breaking and inspirational."
There's a reason why I stopped reading the synopses for films. Genuinely not sure "radicalized" is the right word to use in this context.  But the photo makes me all the more excited to see the film itself.
