Peterloo

Peterloo

Leigh constructs an unlikely historical epic, depicting the moment tens of thousands of protestors for suffrage are descended upon by the British Army, a true to life horror in commemoration of 200 years since the Peterloo Massacre. while a period-piece, the film belongs to the present, with a committed deconstruction of a genteel Britain, come undone as violent interests are exposed.
