a cousin of British movies such as The Full monty and Billy Elliot, Pride relates how a section of the gay community supported the striking miners in the early 1980s. Inspired by real events, it’s a surprisingly feelgood experience, helped by a formidable cast including Bill Nighy, Imelda Staunton, Paddy Considine, Dominic West and Andrew Scott. A movie with head, heart and a great early 1980s soundtrack.
Imelda Staunton has a good time in a good cause
