Dynamic, motivating, and based on a true story, Pride depicts the formation of an unlikely alliance in 1980’s Britain, between a small group of London-based lesbians and gays and striking coal miners tin South Wales.
In 1984, with Margaret Thatcher’s government in full battle with mining unions, a young gay-rights activist in London (Ben Schnetzer) persuades his group of friends to make common cause with striking miners. Arguing that the miners, like the LGBTQ population, are being beaten by police and hated by conservatives, “Lesbians and Gays Support the Miners” raises money for the strike and drives to the South Wales town of Onllwyn to deliver their funds. Once there, however, it is unclear whether their support is welcome. Greeted with varying degrees of warmth and hostility, the groups’ differences obstruct their efforts to stand in solidarity until they slowly begin to learn from, and lean on, each other. A transformational story with an infectious New Wave soundtrack and a cast of characters that would melt the most cynical heart, Pride makes you laugh while earning your respect.

“Some stories are worth getting misty-eyed about, and some crowd-pleasers really please.”  – A. A. Dowd, The Onion A.V. Club
