In this first trailer for Peterloo we are transported to early 20th-century England. Following the Napoleonic wars, England faces rising poverty, prompting calls for liberty, the end of of the corrupt order and their sufferings, and finally democratic reform leading to a mass protest in Manchester. Chanting "Liberty or Death," the protesters are met by armed forces in a clash that left its mark in British history.
