My Ratings: 4/5.
Pride is not only an unique story told but it’s also a true one.
Establishing a political background during the times of Margaret Thatcher the film Pride revolves around the British miners’ strike in 1984 and how a group of Lesbian and Gay activists wholeheartedly supported the families of the jobless miners.
The miners and the LGBT activists, both were fighting for their voice, their respect and their identity.
And so they managed to join hands and stand side by side, help each other (both emotionally and financially as well).
Pride is about accepting ‘who you really are’ and also about recognizing and embracing your true friends ‘whoever they are’.
Superb casting, thanks to Fiona Weir.
Directed by Matthew Warchus Pride is a film of human connection and trust, it’s about self belief and respect as an individual as well as a community.
Overall Pride is a perfectly well-executed drama dipped in blissful British humour. Enjoy.
