Ils s'envient, tentent de se rapprocher, mais ils sont tous les deux mal à l'aise et refoulent leurs désirs.

Au début du XX siècle, une organisation de femmes britanniques souhaite obtenir le droit de vote pour les femmes. Elles appartiennent à des classes sociales différentes, mais ensemble, elles se livrent au même combat : ne plus être considéré comme le sexe faible et obtenir les mêmes droits que les hommes. Elles multiplient les manifestations pacifiques. Mais le gouvernement se montre de plus en plus violent. Contraintes à la clandestinité, ces femmes optent pour la violence afin de faire entendre leurs revendications. Elles sont conscientes des enjeux : elles risquent de perdre leur emploi, leur famille, leur vie… Mais rien ne les arrête. Maud Watts, le personnage principal, s’allie à cette cause.

City banker Mark (Colin Firth) lives with his pregnant wife Laura (Emilia Fox) in a large house in an upper middle-class neighbourhood. Although he has just made a fortune in a financial deal, Mark refuses to give money to a beggar in an underground station, but later regrets this behaviour and begins to feel guilty about his success and opulent lifestyle. Another day, he returns to find the homeless man and gives him 100 pounds. Mark then resolves to use his wealth to help the indigent and volunteer as an outreach worker. As the film develops, it becomes clear that his newfound concern for the poor is also a form of escapism from his materialistic wife, and that he feels trapped and frightened by his life.

It covers the life of Charles II - beginning just before his Restoration to the throne in 1660. He was deeply traumatized by the execution of his father in 1649, after the former's defeat in the Wars of the Three Kingdoms; it begins, however, with his penurious exile in Antwerp in 1658. The film's emphasis is on his court, and his conflicts with Parliament - essentially the same issues which led to the Civil War between his father and the House of Commons, the politics of whom would succeed him - and his relationships with his family, his mistresses and his illegitimate son James, Duke of Monmouth.

Set in Ireland, beginning in 1964, so-called 'fallen' women were considered sinners who needed to be redeemed. The film follows the stories of four young women - Margaret (raped by her cousin), Bernadette (too beautiful and coquettish), Rose (an unmarried mother) and Crispina (an intellectually disabled unmarried mother) - who are all forced by their families or caretakers into the Magdalene Asylum.
