PETERLOO (12A) – 2018 UK 154 min

Director: Mike Leigh
Stars: Rory Kinnear, Maxine Peake, Pearce Quigley

Manchester, 1819. As England recovers from the war with Napoleon, the poor are at the mercy of rich landowners, with prices kept artificially high by the Corn Laws. With hunger biting, angry working men start preaching suffrage and “one man one vote”, and unarmed civilians rally at Peters Field under the nervous eye of the authorities.  Peake is on powerful form as a mother whose family are caught up in the melee, as the Peterloo massacre is reconstructed in forensic detail by masterly veteran director Leigh (Vera Drake, Mr Turner).

FUNNY COW (15) – 2017 UK 102 min – Croydon Comedy Festival screening

Director: Adrian Shergold
Stars: Maxine Peake, Paddy Considine, Stephen Graham

With a “funny bone for a back bone”, a survivor of domestic abuse finds strength through performing, and rises to stardom in the harsh environment of the Northern working men’s clubs. Peake delivers a wonderful synergy of tragedy and comedy, with strong support from Alun Armstrong and decent cameos from John Bishop, Corinne Bailey Rae and Vic Reeves together with a beautiful score by Richard Hawley. Despite its comedic billing, this is often a painful, angry film – but also an empowering British movie.
