New Fabulous Film PRIDE

By Charlotte Robinson, September 12, 2014
PRIDE is one of the best films of the year. Winner of the Queer Palm at Cannes Film Festival PRIDE takes you on an emotional & historical ride with our LGBT community in the United Kingdom. The film was inspired by an extraordinary true story that began in 1984 when Margaret Thatcher was Prime Minister & the National Union of Mineworkers were on strike. This motivated a London-based group of brave gay & lesbian activists to form “Lesbians & Gays Support The Miners” (LGSM) to raise money to support the strikers’ families. At first the Union rejected their support but a small mining village in Wales came together with LGSM after addressing their own homophobia & changed hearts & minds in the UK forever. The cast is led by Bill Nighy (The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel), Imelda Staunton (Maleficent), Dominic West (The Hour), Paddy Considine (Submarine), Andrew Scott (Sherlock), Joseph Gilgun (Lockout), George MacKay (How I Live Now) & Ben Schnetzer (Warcraft). PRIDE is directed by Tony Winner Matthew Warchus (God of Carnage) from a screenplay by Stephen Beresford, the dramatic comedy was produced by David Livingstone with Cameron McCracken, Christine Langan & Natascha Wharton serving as executive producers. This must-see CBS Film opens in theaters September 26th. Be prepared to laugh, cry & be inspired.
