18:45 Pride at Friday, October 31, 2014 at 6:45 »Tonight at City Cinema
Only 9 days left to see this film.

Rated: 14 Accompaniment (Coarse Language, Mature Theme)
Runs: 120 minutes
Director: Matthew Warchus
Country: UK
Released: 2014
Starring: Imelda Staunton, Andrew Scott, Bill Nighy, Dominic West, Freddie Fox

“A crowd-pleaser in the best sense of the word... I couldn't have liked it more.” - Peter Travers, Rolling Stone. “It’s the holy grail for filmmakers: to tell a story with something to say about our world that is also shamelessly entertaining, moving and funny. Pride recalls how a small group of gay activists took a trip from London to rural South Wales in 1984 to lend their support to a beleaguered village during the miners’ strike. Their reasoning was that the miners were going through a struggle not so different to their own. And what joy and pain director Matthew Warchus and writer Stephen Beresford unearth as they detail awkward meetings that blossom into unlikely friendships and personal breakthroughs. The ‘gays’, as the Welsh call them, are led by young Mark Ashton, loud and determined. Those at his side in Lesbians and Gays Support the Miners (LGSM) include barely out Joe and a couple, actor Jonathan and his more meek partner Gethin, for whom a return to Wales holds special meaning. An equally sprawling cast of Welsh characters includes Hefina, Dai and Cliff. Both ‘sides’ meet on various occasions, culminating in a raucous visit to London when Mark and his comrades organise a series of ‘Pits and Perverts’ fundraising concerts.... The beauty of Beresford’s script is that it champions solidarity while never ignoring solo experience; helped by a strong cast, he finds moments of truth for so many characters in some very effective brief scenes. In tone, ‘Pride’ bears comparison with British social comedies like The Full Monty, Billy Elliot and Brassed Off: it’s populist, touching, full of songs, and it mounts a twin raid on our tear ducts and funny bones. But where Pride has the edge over those films is in a progressive touch that anchors it in 2014. That’s not to say Pride is especially daring; but for a defiantly mainstream film, it’s free of coyness or embarrassment and unashamed of shouting about the powers of solidarity, friendship and empathy. It’s a joyous film, full of love and warmth but unafraid to admit that with sticking out your neck comes struggle and sorrow. Truly lovely.” - Dave Calhoun, Time Out
