Synopsis:
From acclaimed director Mike Leigh comes this epic portrayal of events surrounding the infamous 1819 'Peterloo Massacre' in Manchester, when armed government forces charged into a crowd of 60,000 peaceful protesters who were desperate for greater democracy and improved working conditions. Featuring stellar performances from Maxine Peake and Rory Kinnear, 'Peterloo' is an explosively visceral retelling of a defining moment in British history.

A Story that Needed to be Told - Peterloo review by PS

Spoiler Alert
14/11/2018

If you've never heard of Peterloo this is a very good place to start. It is a very thoughtful and well produced film which has a lot of authentice touches. As it's a certificate 12 it is suitable for young people, though it is a trifle over-long and the long scenes of speeches at the beginning were rather didactic and may be off-putting to younger audiences. Otherwise, well worth seeing.

Boring - Peterloo review by LH

Spoiler Alert
29/11/2018

I love the story of Peterloo! I love radical history, I didn’t not love this film. Made a fascinating story very boring. So upset. Mike Leigh makes films that lack interest for me in general.

Another socialist manifesto - Peterloo review by Alphaville

Spoiler Alert
16/03/2019

This is basically another socialist diatribe from director Mike Leigh, full of tell-don’t-show speechifying in place of character and plot. He has previous. Watch with scepticism. “Liberty or death,” chant the crowd. The suffrage meeting in Manchester 1819 was certainly so poorly policed by the cavalry that it caused a disaster, but this is for the indoctrinated only.
