Epic portrayal of events surrounding the infamous 1819 Peterloo Massacre. 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 were killed, 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

Flicks Advisor (comments from our film promoters)

I loved it, but some found it too long.

This was generally enjoyed and people found it interesting and rather tragic. There was some feeling that it was a touch long and slightly lost its energy because of that, but the storyline was effective and great character acting.

Sets and costumes authentic and a stirring film but 2½ hours of rhetoric and a bloody massacre was quite a challenging watch.
