I went to see the film Pride tonight, I had no idea about it until I heard Kermode & Mayo give it a big thumbs up last week.
Set during the 12 month miners strike, it was unashamedly a feel good film, but it also portrayed some of the real fears/ concerns/ prejudices that were prevalent at the time (1984).
The ensemble cast were superb, with Imelda Stoughton, Bill Nighy & Paddy Considine being amongst the highlights, & Dominic West as a gay actor being simply outstanding. His dancing, on the tables in a south Wales miners welfare club to "Shame, shame, shame" by Shirley & Co had me laughing out loud.
The soundtrack was eclectic & included Bronski Beat, Billy Bragg & others.
All in all strongly recommended, quite possibly my favourite film of the year so far.
