Based on an incredible true story, 'Pride' is a film about two seemingly opposite communities who form a surprising and ultimately triumphant partnership.

Set during the Thatcher era, the Welsh mining community struggle to make ends meet during the 1984 miners’ strike. In London, a group of gay and lesbian activists decide to raise money for the miners in solidarity. The group call themselves ‘LGSM’ – Lesbian and Gays Support the Miners – and approach the Union of Mineworkers to pledge their support. But there is a problem – the Union seems unwilling to accept their help. Undeterred, the LGSM members single out a small mining village to make their donation in person.

A terrific ensemble cast, including Bill Nighy (Love Actually) and Imelda Staunton (Vera Drake), portray the real people who stood up and fought for their place in society. A rousing British crowd-pleaser in the spirit of Billy Elliot and The Full Monty, Pride is a funny, affecting and truly inspiring film.
