Iron Jawed Angels – Force Feeding Scene

Alice Paul (Hilary Swank) in Iron Jawed Angels is force fed after refusing to eat. The women singing “Will The Circle Be Unbroken” are suffragettes who have been imprisoned for supporting the women’s right to vote. Song Lyrics: I was standing by my window On a cold and cloudy day When I saw that hearse come rolling For to carry my mother away Will the circle be unbroken By and by, lord, by and by There’s a better home a-waiting In the sky, lord, in the sky For I told that undertaker Undertaker please drive slow For that body you are hauling Lord, I hate to see her go Will the circle be unbroken By and by, lord, by and by There’s a better home a-waiting In the sky, lord, in the sky I will follow close behind her Tried to hold up and be brave But I could not hide my sorrow When they laid her in the grave Will the circle be unbroken By and by, lord, by and by There’s a better home a-waiting In the sky, lord, in the sky
