What a shame this film did not enjoy more success at the box-office. Beautifully observed period drama ( yes, this genre can stretch outside bodices and bodkins )with wit, satire, social commentary, great acting and a nicely-turned plot. It's also fascinating that such an important story has never been filmed before, neither as 'fiction' like this nor as documentary. It was outrageous that the use of the 'f' word in totally natural situations in the end got this film a 15 certificate, as that no doubt damaged the cinema takings. I agree with the producers that the swearing in the King's Speech was less natural, but that film got a '12'.However, now's you chance to let your tween daughters see an inspirational story of women standing up for themselves.
