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. This touching comedy stars Bill Nighy (Living, Love Actually), Imelda Staunton (Vera Drake), Andrew Scott (Fleabag), and George Mackay (1917).
