Moviola - "Peterloo"

Friday 12 April 2019, 19:30

Moviola at the Village Hall in Milborne Port concludes it's 2018-2019 season on Friday 12th April 2019 when it shows Peterloo (Cert 12A) (154 minutes). Peterloo is Mike Leigh's portrayal of the events surrounding the infamous 1819 Peterloo Massacre. Government forces charged into a crowd of over 60,000 people who had gathered in a peaceful protest against rising levels of poverty and to demand politic al reform. 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. Starring Maxine Peake and Rory Kinnear.

"Mike 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. He has a huge ensemble cast but that exhaustive attention to detail and fascination with the eccentricities of human behaviour which has always characterised his work is still there.” The Independent

Peterloo stands as a timely corrective, an angry reminder of those who fought for the democracy that we now seem to regard with such complacency.” Sight and Sound

Peterloo has received four nominations at the 2018 British Independent Film Awards for Best Costume Design, Best Make Up and Hair Design, Best Production Design and Best Effects. It went on to be nominated for Camerimage overall, and won the FIPRESCI Prize.

At the Venice Film festival, Mike Leigh won a Special Mention in the Human Rights Film Network Award category and the film was nominated for Best Film of 2018.
