Mike Leigh United Kingdom, 2018

Eriugena82's rating of the film Peterloo

A daring, demanding and robustly intellectual film. It is certainly worth seeing though; despite a few flaws, it is a film with some real power in it. Some viewers may find their patience tested (there are some seriously long-winded speeches) but getting into the contemporary frame of mind really sets up an emotional climax. All of this is done with a serious eye for detail too, it felt very authentic to the period.
