PETERLOO (Theatrical Release USA 2018)

 Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.8|5.0 Starsìììì 

Peterloo uses a cinematographic technique involving color along with terrific period costuming that creates a strong feeling of realism and ‘being there’. WOW! It quickly becomes one of those movies that engrosses to the point that it is difficult to look at it with the critical, objective eye. The movie can easily be a re-watch just to catch the nuances so artistically worked into every scene. The composition and the musical score make the film nearly as good as a 5.0/5.0 movie. Director Mike Leigh does an outstanding job of pulling this story together to create a movie worth adding to the home entertainment library. High quality entertainment with authentic presentation work for the investment of time and money.
