Description

An epic portrayal of the infamous 1819 Peterloo Massacre, where British government forces charged a crowd of over 60,000 gathered to demand political reform and protest rising levels of poverty. Mike Leigh tells the story from key players: those suffering through unemployment and famine in the wake of the Napoleonic Wars on one side; the magistrates and military authorities on the other. He is scathing in his depiction of the powers that be, but reserves most of his attention for the protesters, out-of-work textile workers, and political reformers advocating for their right to vote. Peterloo was a defining moment in British democracy, and Leigh weaves a powerful portrait of how people take a stand for political change. (UK, 2019, 154 mins., PG-13, English | Dir. Mike Leigh)
