The National Union of Rail, Maritime and Transport Workers in association with Somerset Film present the BAFTA award-winning comedy
Pride cert 15.
A special benefit screening, introduced by David ‘Dai’ Donovan, whose story this film tells (Q&A to follow)
This film 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. As the strike drags on, the two groups discover that standing together makes for the strongest union of all.
A clear winner that makes you laugh, cry, and generally want to party and parade like it’s 1984. Respect. Empire ****
Pride vibrates with the same energy and uplift as a great stage show. It chases applause, and earns it. Daily Telegraph ****
