Film Friday: Pride

Pride is a new British comedy set around the time of the Miners Strikes in 1984, when a group of gay activists decided to support them and formed a new group called LGSM - Lesbians and Gays Support the Miners.

I agree with Sarah that the film took a little while to get going, but there were lots of emotional moments, some sad and some funny - including a bizarre part when Dominic West gets up on the tabletops in the Welsh community centre and dances to a disco tune.. (quite amusing if you remember him from The Wire!) The end of the film was very moving and I hadn't realised that a lot of the characters were based on real people so it was interesting to hear what happened to them.
