After 'Turner', the British filmmaker returns with this film set in 1819 on the confrontation between the English cavalry and the protesters of Manchester.
Four years after presenting at the Cannes Film Festival 'Mr. Turner ', Mike Leigh returns with' Peterloo ', a film produced by Amazon that recreates the altercations between the English cavalry and a multitude of workers in the cotton industry (about 80,000) protesting peacefully in Manchester, England, asking for reforms in the Parliament . The confrontation, known as 'the Peterloo massacre', resulted in 15 deaths and nearly 700 injuries.
Set in 1819, the film, which will hit English theaters on November 2, stars Rory Kinnear, Maxine Peake, Pearce Quigley, David Moorst, Rachel Finnegan and Neil Bell. There is still no date set for its release in Spain.
