    'PETERLOO' ARRIVES
 TO VENICE FILM FESTIVAL!
Also premiering in Venice, tomorrow to be precise, is Mike Leigh's historical drama PETERLOO starring Maxine Peake, our dearest Nico
Peterloo arrives tomorrow in Venice
Mirallegro and Rory Kinnear! An epic portrayal of the events surrounding the infamous 1819 Peterloo Massacre, where a peaceful pro democracy rally at St Peter's Field in Manchester turned into one of the bloodiest and most notorious episodes in British history. The massacre saw British government forces charge into a crowd of over 60,000 that had gathered to demand political reform and protest against rising levels of poverty. Many protesters were killed and hundreds more injured, sparking a nationwide outcry but also further government suppression. The Peterloo Massacre was a defining moment in British democracy which also played a significant role in the founding of The Guardian newspaper.

  1. The trailer of this movie which deals with the fate of a king and the birth of the french revolution, makes me ask myself this:
    What has become so far of the 3-targets of this bloody revolution: liberte', egalite', fraternite'? Not much, I dare say.
    I like the women in the trailer, and their head covering.
