An epic portrayal of the events surrounding the infamous 1819 Peterloo Massacre, where a peaceful pro-democracy rally at St. Peter’s Field in Manchester turned into one of the bloodiest and most notorious episodes in British history.

With contemporary politicians and commentators raising the fear of civil unrest in England over the thorny issue of Brexit and the potential damage of rolling out universal credit across the country, director Mike Leigh’s epic reconstruction of a dark chapter of English history has timely resonance. 

'Mike Leigh’s reconstruction of a dark chapter of British history reaches epic heights.' Jeremy Aspinall, Radio Times
