Suffragette (12A) The inspiringly kick-ass history of Britain’s early feminist movement is powerfully recreated in Suffragette, written by Abi Morgan (Shame) and directed by Sarah Gavron (Brick Lane). Carey Mulligan stars as Maud, a young factory worker who discovers the cause in the early 1900s. Her colleague, Violet (Anne-Marie Duff), is campaigning for votes for women, and Maud hesitantly begins to take an interest, eventually becoming radicalised by a fierce world of hunger strikes, guerrilla tactics and brutal government reprisals. Mulligan is joined by Meryl Streep as the fearless feminist leader Emmeline Pankhurst, alongside Romola Garai as upper-class campaigner Alice, Natalie Press as Emily Wilding Davison, and Helena Bonham Carter as a local chemist who uses her shop as a secret base for meetings. Friday and Wednesday at 6pm, Saturday at 8.15pm, Sunday at 5.30pm and 8pm, Monday at 8.45pm, Tuesday at 2pm and 5pm, Wednesday at 8.30pm and Thursday at 4.30pm.

The Walk (PG) French tightrope artist Philippe Petit’s extraordinary journey across a wire suspended between the World Trade Centre’s twin towers in 1974 was celebrated in James Marsh’s Oscar-winning documentary Man On Wire. Here writer-director Robert Zemeckis (Back To The Future, Flight) delves further into the background of his daring and indeed illegal escapade. Friday at 8.30pm, Saturday at 5.15pm, Monday at 6pm and Tuesday at 7.30pm.

Hotel Transylvania 2 (U) Now that Dracula (Adam Sandler) has opened the Hotel Transylvania’s doors to humans, things are changing for the better; however, Drac is secretly worried that his half-human grandson, Dennis, isn’t showing his vampire side. So, while Mavis and Johnny are away, Drac enlists his friends to help him put the boy through a ‘monster-in-training” boot camp. But things really get batty when Drac’s cantankerous, old-school dad (Mel Brooks) pays an unexpected visit.

A Matter Of Life And Death (U) Sunday at 3pm.

NT: Of Mice and Men Thursday at 7pm.
