The storyline of ‘Peterloo’ by Mike Leigh

Marking the 200th anniversary of some tragic events that occurred in Manchester, England, ‘Peterloo’ has premiered at a festival. It was directed by the filmmaker Mike Leigh who thinks that the happenings of many years ago can still be applied to the present day. In 1819, an assault was carried out on a pro-democratic crowd of 60,000 people holding a protest. 15 of them ended up dead and up to 700 were injured.

The background of the movie

Reportedly the most expensive film by Mike Leigh, ‘Peterloo’ is about more than just the massacre. Indeed, the movie is set to describe the movement that surrounded the tragedy. The historical drama, which lasts around two and a half hours, also delves into the parliamentary reform and the protesters’ demands which took decades to be fulfilled.

For example, he has won a Palme D’Or at Cannes. His latest motion picture, ‘Mr. Turner’, was released in 2014.
