We were lucky enough to see Pride yesterday, and our reviewer absolutely loved it. The Queer Palm winning movie is out on September 12th in the UK, so keep eye out for our review in the days beforehand.
A new clip from the film has been released, which features George MacKay as Joe, who plucks up the courage to join a 1980s gay liberation march, and becomes more involved than he’d expected.
Here’s the synopsis: ‘Pride is inspired by an extraordinary true story. 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.‘
The likes of Bill Nighy, Imelda Staunton, Dominic West, Andrew Scott and Paddy Considine star, with Tony Award-winning theatre director Matthew Warchus making his feature helming debut with the movie.
Take a look at the clip below and watch the full trailer here.
