'Peterloo' (July 3)
Amazon presents director Mike Leigh's latest historical drama, about the infamous 1819 massacre that took place in Manchester, England. After the end of the Napoleonic Wars, England's economy was suffering and the people were starving due to terrible laws passed by the 1 percenters in Parliament. That led to public demonstrations that were peaceful until British cavalry charged into St. Peter's Field with their sabres drawn against 80,000 people. Available on Amazon July 3.
NEW ON DVD AND BLU-RAY
'The Best of Enemies' (July 2)
Taraji P. Henson and Sam Rockwell star in this true story of the unlikely relationship between Ann Atwater, an outspoken civil rights activist, and C.P. Ellis, a local Ku Klux Klan leader. Set in 1971 Durham, North Carolina, residents continue to clash over the 1954 Supreme Court decision to desegregate their schools. At a series of town meetings, co-chairs Atwater and Ellis have very different views — but also find more in common than they thought.
The movie arrives on Blu-ray and DVD on July 2 (and is already available on Digital HD). Bonus content includes making-of featurettes.
'The Public' (July 2)
A star-studded cast including Alec Baldwin, Christian Slater, and Jena Malone take on this harrowing tale from writer/director Emilio Estevez.

What begins as an act of civil disobedience becomes a stand-off with police and the media.
The movie arrives on Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital HD on July 2.
