With an all-star cast including Carey Mulligan, Helena Bonham Carter, Brendan Gleeson, Anne-Marie Duff, Ben Whishaw and Meryl Streep as Emmeline Pankhurst, SUFFRAGETTE is the powerful and thrilling first film about the remarkable untold story of the real foot soldiers of the Suffragette movement. These women were not primarily from the genteel educated classes, they were working women who had seen peaceful protest achieve nothing. Radicalised 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 (played by Carey Mulligan) was one such foot soldier. The story of her fight for dignity is as gripping and visceral as any thriller; it is also both heart-breaking and inspirational.
A HUGE "Thank you" to our generous sponsor, SENIOR STRENGTH TRAINING CLASS.
The strength training class for people over 50 was started 15 years ago by Carlene Harmon (no relation to Mark) and Mary Jane Bush (no relation to W or Jeb).
The class is now taught by Jeanette Tardiff and Joan Duplessis. It meets on Tuesday and Friday mornings at the Jewett School on Bridge Street in Bucksport. The purpose of the class is to keep seniors strong and fit so they can feel good and remain independent. It is a social hour and well as an energy builder. As one member said, "It is the best deal in town for a buck."
And don't forget that our Sunday 2pm show is open captioned for those who have trouble hearing or following dialogue.
