Peterloo ★★★★★

PETERLOO is the NASHVILLE of costume dramas

A Bruegel painting come to life. This movie was misunderstood as a misfire when it came out. And pushed out of awards talk as soon as it had its festival premier. But it’s perfect on its own terms. 

This movie should’ve started a genre revival. By now, there should have been a dozen more unwieldy historical movies with all crowds and no central character
