Pride (2014) film still

Gays and lesbians support the miners in Thatcher's Great Britain.

Queer Palme d'Or (2014) for this ensemble drama (what a cast!) that includes Bily Nighy, Imelda Staunton, Paddy Considine, Dominik West -and Andrew Scott, in his pre-All of Us Strangers fame.  Pride (2014), written by UK actor and writer Steven Beresford -and directed by Matthew Warchus- is the feel-good sibling of Billy Elliott (2000), and it feels good in its 120 minutes of screening time.

Based on real events, it showcases the Lesbians & Gays Support the Minor story -LGBTQ+  player have to fight not only with Thatcherism, but with homophobia as well in the small Welsh town of Onllwyn.

Ben Schnetze, Joseph Gilgun, George MacKay, Faye Marsay, Dominic West and Andrew Scott are the young and not-so-young faces that make this happen. As expected, it is an LGBTQ+ comedy of manners; its primary asset is that it believes strongly in the possibility of mutual understanding when all prejudices have been lifted, and won't back off from its cheery but steely good sentiment. It might make you cry.
