Based on a true story, Pride is a jubilant account of how two very dissimilar communities came to join forces during the miners' strike in Thatcher-era Britain. A motley Londonbased group of lesbian and gay activists decides to extend support directly to a Welsh mining village. Though faced with considerable social stigma, the two groups gradually form an unlikely but strong alliance. More than just a feel-good film, Pride's solid casting and well-balanced script makes the case for solidarity in the real world.
