From internationally acclaimed and Academy Award-nominated director Mike Leigh (Secrets & Lies, Mr. Turner) comes this epic portrayal of the events surrounding the infamous 1819 Peterloo Massacre. When British forces charged into a peaceful pro-democracy rally in Manchester, it set in motion one of the bloodiest massacres in British history. Leigh’s newest film is a “well-acted and brilliantly staged addition to the filmmaker’s oeuvre, which has always sought to understand Britain, then and now.” (NPR)
