Why watch Pride? :
With June being Pride Month, there couldn't be a better time to watch Pride – the BAFTA-winning comedy-drama from Tolkien's Stephen Beresford.
Based on a true story, Pride follows a community of gay activists in the 1980s as they band together to raise money for those affected by the British miners' strike, forming the Lesbians and Gays Support the Miners campaign.
Starring Joseph Gilgun, Faye Marsay, Dominic West, Andrew Scott, Imelda Staunton, Bill Nighy, Monica Dolan and other big names, Pride is a moving, educational and warm watch, delivering a compassionate look back at a moment of hope in what was a bleak time.
