The story of the 1819 Peterloo Massacre where British forces attacked a peaceful pro-democracy rally in Manchester.
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. The massacre saw British government forces charge into a crowd of over 60,000 that had gathered to demand political reform and protest against rising levels of poverty. Many protesters were killed and hundreds more injured, sparking a nationwide outcry but also further government suppression. The Peterloo Massacre was a defining moment in British democracy which also played a significant role in the founding of The Guardian newspaper.
Featuring Rory Kinnear, Maxine Peake, Neil Bell, Pearce Quigley

“With this richly intelligent, passionate movie Mike Leigh has fought a brilliant rearguard action on history’s political battlefield.” – Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
“Leigh’s achievement is to have made a period film with the same immediacy and sense of anger that runs through contemporary dramas like Hillsborough or Bloody Sunday.” – Geoffrey Macnab, Independent UK
