WIN two Curzon tickets to thrilling historical drama

PUBLISHED: 10:00 07 October 2015




A thrilling drama about one of the most significant social events in history will be on show at the Curzon this week, and the Times has two tickets to give away to see it.

Directed by Sarah Gavron, Suffragette (12A) follows the story of the foot soldiers of the early feminist movement, a group of women who were regularly forced underground to stay out of sight of the state.

These working class women, played by the likes of Meryl Streep, Helena Bonham Carter and Carey Mulligan, were willing to lose everything in the fight for equality, even turning to violence after it became clear peaceful protests were not leading anywhere.

Suffragette will run at the Curzon from Monday until October 18.

Following the historical theme, a classic Oscar Wilde play will be screened live from London’s Vaudeville theatre tomorrow night (Thursday) at 7.15pm.

As well as witnessing The Importance of Being Earnest itself, viewers will get the chance to see exclusive cast interviews and backstage footage.

This Sunday’s Curzon Specials offering will be Mistress America, a film about lonely college freshman, Tracy, (Lola Kirke) in New York who is taken in by her future stepsister, Brooke (Greta Gerwig). Longing for a taste of glamorous metropolitan life, Tracy is seduced by Brooke’s madcap and alluring schemes.

The Curzon heads to Clevedon’s Walton Castle on Tuesday, when Academy Award-winning Casablanca (U) will be screened while guests can sample culinary delights from a distinctive Moroccan-style menu.

A Walk in the Woods (15) will receive its final Curzon screening tomorrow (Thursday) while Hotel Transylvania 2 (U) will continue to be shown at various times until October 30.
