Today’s post isn’t a review, but just a extended squeal of excitement over Pride, an upcoming film about two oppressed communities coming together.
From the production company:
It’s Summer 1984, Margaret Thatcher is in power, and the National Union of Mineworkers are on strike! At the Gay Pride March in London, a group of gay and lesbian activists decides to raise money to support the families of the striking miners. But the only problem is the Union seems too embarrassed to receive their support.
Not discouraged, the activists ignore the Union and go direct to the miners. They identify a small mining villiage in Wales to make their donations to the community in person. This journey begins a surprising partnership between two seemingly alien comunties as they fight for the same cause.
Dry humor? Check. Historical fiction? Check. Going to make you cry? Probably. Can’t wait.
