It was supposed to be London Pride today so I thought I’d throw this extra movie in, which just happens to be called “Pride”. It’s another amazing true story, set in the Eighties when, under a previous Tory government, a group of lesbians and gay activists supported the miners.
The miners were on strike to save their livelihoods and way of life – to keep their pride. Written by Stephen Beresford and directed by Matthew Warchus, it’s beautiful, hilarious, dramatic, moving and heart-warming. It features the cream of UK acting talent and was BAFTA and Golden Globe nominated.
