Mike Leigh’s Peterloo is coming out at just the right time amid global protests against our American and British governments. The Peterloo massacre of 1819 so named in reference to Waterloo, which occurred a few years earlier, and took place at St. Peter’s field in Manchester, England. The government charged into a crowd of protectors gathered to protest the awful economic conditions of the time. Mike Leigh has always maintained a high degree of authenticity with his films, which has, in the past, drawn the attention of Oscar voters. Who knows how it will go this year, but Peterloo is distributed by Amazon Studios. Here is the trailer.
