Pride300Based on actual events, the film relates the uneasy coalition between striking Welsh mineworkers and gay activists from London during Margaret Thatcher’s reign in the ‘80s. Bound by their shared repression, the two groups tentatively begin to work together. While their alliance isn’t free of suspicion and hostility, it ultimately pins its hopes on the ways the spirit of solidarity can transcend fear and biogtry. 2014, UK/France, 119 minutes, in English and Welsh

“The kind of hearty, blunt-force drama with softened edges that leaves audiences applauding and teary-eyed.” – Stephen Holden, The New York Times

“A dazzler, one of those perfectly engineered crowd-pleasers like The Full Monty and Little Miss Sunshine that proves once again how movies are a great populist art.”
– David Edelstein, New York Magazine

“Quite simply, one of the best movies of the year so far. . .” – Michael Ordoña, San Francisco Chronicle

“This film moves effortlessly from some pretty intense dramatic moments to hilarious scenes showcasing the contrasting lifestyles of the gay and straight worlds to some vignettes of incredible poignancy” – Bill Zwecker, Chicago Sun-Times
