News & Interviews for Iron Jawed Angels
Critic Reviews for Iron Jawed Angels
Iron Jawed Angels relies on a disappointingly conventional script, one that delivers stock characters who have no dimensionality, and simplistic plot abbreviations that you'd find in a high school textbook.
The film celebrates freethinkers who made huge personal sacrifices to wage a critical battle for human rights, yet it does so by bowing to commercial orthodoxies and the meekest modern notions of womanhood.
Gussied up with a comically anachronistic use of period music on the soundtrack and flashy, MTV-style montage sequences, pic misguidedly strives - but ultimately fails -- to belie its instincts as an assembly-line movie-of-the-week.
Iron Jawed Angels is an important history lesson told in a fresh, and blazing fashion.
Audience Reviews for Iron Jawed Angels
Interesting, but its style is too muddy.
Strong, powerful story, it blew me away. I think it's a must see for everyone. I already know the answer to this question but why don't we learn about THIS in history class? I feel like I had no idea the depths of the struggles of the woman's suffrage movement until I saw this movie.
This is a really well-made film about the fight for suffrage in the U.S. with fine acting by a great cast, and nice direction to boot. The soundtrack iis anachronistic, but it works well, so I have no problem with it, even though it adds historical innacuracy. This was an HBO production, and it helps that it was too. I sadly have to admit that this film would have tanked had it been a big budget Hollywood affair. If you can track it down, watch it. This film captures important events that ALL Americans need to see and know about.
