Review:

Based on actual events, Pride tells the story of the unexpected unity between the striking National Union of Mineworkers and London- based gay and lesbian activists. It’s 1984, Margaret Thatcher is Prime Minister and both groups are fighting for their rights. Recognising their common aim, the gay and lesbian activists decided to support the striking Welsh miners.

With a stellar cast (Andrew Scott, Bill Nighy, Dominic West) and a fantastic musical score, Pride is both heart-warmingly funny and poignantly political. Looking back at recent history and the fight against social injustices that continues today: it’s well worth a watch.
