Pride (2014)

Review by-Jarrett Leahy

Years of tension between the National Union of Mineworkers and U.K. Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher boiled over in the spring of 1984. Inspired by their own skirmishes with authorities, a group of gay activists formed the “Lesbians and Gays Support the Miners” program and began raising money in their neighborhood to help subsidize the strikers and their struggling families. 696 more words

People told me it was good and I was still surprised. This is in part because I don’t trust anyone else’s opinion on anything ever… but also because I don’t usually like cosy Brit films. 734 more words

Review: Pride, 2014, dir. Matthew Warchus

“From its first frames, Pride opens itself wide to scrutiny: this is based on a true story. We’re used to this, of course. We turn to the cinema for escape, but by invoking REALITY the so-called “true story” breaks the illusion we’ve sought, and in turn, we feel it’s our obligation to call the veracity of every single element on the screen into question. 57 more words

Pride; Bloody British Brilliance

On Friday I watched Pride for the second time and luckily for me it didn’t lose any of its original charm. The story of the lesbian and gay activists who came out in support of the miners was still as heartwarming as the first time I’d had the pleasure of seeing it. 390 more words
