"Suffragette" earns seven awards from Women Film Critics Circle

A few days ago, the Women Film Critics Circle announced their 2015 awards.  Not surprisingly, they heavily favored Suffragette, handing out recognition in seven categories:

Best Movie about Women
Best Movie by a Woman
Best Actress (Carey Mulligan)
Best Female Images in a Movie
Best Ensemble (go Meryl!)
Courage in Filmmaking (Sarah Gavron)
Karen Morley Award (a film that best exemplifies a woman's place in history or society, and a courageous search for identity)

Unfortunately, this is essentially the only recognition this film has garnered among critics, and the Women Film Critics Circle should be a slam dunk anyway.  Regardless, I'm a fan of the film and wager that Meryl is very happy that she was a part of it.
