Screening Of 'Pride' @ deciBel

 Pride (UK 2014) (7.8/10·IMDb - 93%·Rotten Tomatoes). A group of gay activists in London and a South Welsh miners’ community are the “odd couple” in Pride.

Winner of the Best Independent British Film Award in 2014 and nominated for Best Comedy/Musical at the Golden Globes, Pride takes place during the Thatcher period, when miners’ went on strike to protest against the Iron Lady’s tough coal industry reforms.

Based on a true story in which LGBT campaigners fought alongside and supported (both economically and morally) the miners during the summer of 1984, Director Matthew Warchus wrapped the film with contagious joyfulness and anarchy.

Considering how many British films have used the Thatcher period as a backdrop - Brassed Off, Billy Elliot, This is England and My Beautiful Launderette just to name a few – one cannot help but wonder why such an inspiring story of solidarity that had real impact on the politics of the UK has not been portrayed in film before.

Cast includes Dominic West (The Wire), Imelda Staunton (Vera Drake) and Bill Nighy (Love Actually).
