SYLWADAU:

  • A detailed history lesson – amazing detail!
  • Very realistic.  Thought it might show the impact afterwards
  • An epic of a film – a sign of the times
  • I do love a good baddy and there were certainly plenty of those – was it acceptable given the mores of the age or was the early 19th century full of brutes and cads?
  • A weirdly paced film – sometimes almost Shakespearean, sometimes quite shallow – but shines a light on an important and overlooked part of British democratic history
  • How little life changes
  • Great film – the riot scene was brutal!
  • History I’d never even known.  Thought provoking.  Times have not changed sadly
  • So pleased to have seen this.  Feel a little overwhelmed – brilliant and just what needs to be seen
  • Vive le republic!!
  • Much better than I expected
  • Enjoyed the film, loved the acting, well scripted and directed.  History should be kept alive in films as not a lot of reading done these days.  More like this please
  • I’ve been looking forward to this film since I first heard about it in early days of its production  my plans to see it earlier were unavoidably thwarted so I was very please dot see it tonight  a great achievement from Mike Leigh
  • Thank you
  • Excellent film.  Will find out more about the event which I think is hidden away
  • Given the current power struggles in the UK it seems that not much has changed
  • Very affecting – wonderful hats
  • Fantastic film!  Brilliant well developed set scenes.  Hidden from popular history
  • Harrowing portrayal of the horror that humans are able to act upon each other when they see the difference between themselves.  A warning for us all  thank you fo showing such an important film
  • Gwych!
  • A great tribute to those who protested
  • But there were a few caricatures
  • Powerful shocking film
  • Awesome
