2015 Savannah Film Festival to Kick-off with Sarah Gavron's "Suffragette"

Directed by Sarah Gavron and written by Abi Morgan, "Suffragette" has been chosen to open the 2015 Savannah Film Festival on October 24th.

Gavron and Morgan previously worked in the same capacity together on "Brick Lane." Morgan also penned "Shame," "The Iron Lady" and "The Invisible Woman," which screened at the 2013 Savannah Film Festival (and was one of that year's best selections). "Suffragette" stars Carey Mulligan, Helena Bonham Carter, Natalie Press, Anne-Marie Duff, Romola Garai, Brendan Gleeson, Ben Whishaw and Meryl Streep.

The last two openers at the Savannah Film Festival have seen the filmmakers attend (Alexander Payne and Bruce Dern for "Nebraska" and Victor Levin for "5 to 7"). Will we get to see "Suffragette" accompanied by its filmmakers or any of its stars? We will find out soon.

Also screening at this year's festival—and titles that are sure to make our 'What to See' list—include John Crowley's "Brooklyn," Marc Abraham's "I Saw the Light," Trey Edward Shults' "Krisha" (which also played the Atlanta Film Festival and Sidewalk Film Festival), Nicholas Hytner's "Lady in the Van," Nanni Moretti's "Mia Madre," Catherine Hardwicke's "Miss You Already," Lenny Abrahamson's "Room," László Nemes' "Son of Saul," Paul Dalio's "Touched With Fire," James Vanderbilt's "Truth" and Paolo Sorrentino's "Youth."
