Inspired by an extraordinary true story, Pride has had audiences standing up and cheering since its World Premiere at Cannes, where it won the Queer Palm Award, earlier this year. It’s the summer of 1984, Margaret Thatcher is in power and the National Union of Mineworkers is on strike, prompting a London-based group of gay and lesbian activists to raise money to support the strikers’ families. Initially rebuffed by the Union, the group identifies a tiny mining village in Wales and sets off to make their donation in person. As the strike drags on, the two groups discover that standing together makes for the strongest union of all. Pride is directed by Matthew Warchus and features a pitch perfect ensemble cast that includes BAFTA and Golden Globe Award winner Bill Nighy and Oscar nominee Imelda Staunton.
