"With this richly intelligent, passionate movie Mike Leigh has fought a brilliant rearguard action on history’s political battlefield."
Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
"Despite Leigh being out of his comfort zone with such a massive movie undertaking, his ability to seamlessly move between the lives of disparate characters means it’s never plodding or one-note."
- Jeremy Aspinall, Radio Times
"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
"There is a danger of filing Peterloo away as an "important film" - but it is also a complex, rousing and rewarding one for anyone prepared to meet it on its own unapologetically ambitious terms."
- Robbie Collin, Daily Telegraph
PETERLOO is a British period drama, based on the 1819 massacre, in which British forces attack peaceful protesters in Manchester.
