Pride

Every minute of this terrific film is graced with wit and beauty. Original and adorable, each performance is warming and pitch perfect.

A London-based group of gay and lesbian activists decides to support a small Welsh village that is struck by hard times during the 1980s strike by the miners.

Yes, it’s an odd premise for a feelgood fest. But it works because the ensemble of knowns (Bill Nighy, Dominic West and Imelda Staunton) and unknowns build a seamless tale and bring to life a compelling and true story.

To create something joyful from a grim time in recent history is a real achievement.

See it. You’ll love it.
