Peterloo : Starring Maxine Peake and Rory Kinnear
Synopsis : From acclaimed director Mike Leigh comes this epic portrayal of events surrounding the infamous 1819 Peterloo Massacre in Manchester, when armed government forces charged into a crowd of 60,000 peaceful protesters who were desperate for greater democracy and improved working conditions. Featuring stellar performances from Maxine Peake (The Theory of Everything) and Rory Kinnear (The Imitation Game), Peterloo is an explosively visceral retelling of a defining moment in British history.
