A British Mining Community and LGBT Activists Form an Unlikely Alliance in this New Trailer for PRIDE!
Hey guys! Horrorella here...
Set during Britain's historic Mining Strike in 1984, PRIDE tells the story of a group of LGBT activists and a poor Welsh mining town who come together, against all odds and prejudices, when the activist group decides to raise money to support the miners' efforts.
At times, the footage feels a tad precious, as we see the elderly mining folk gawk at their first interaction with LGBT culture, but the trailer also includes a couple of genuinely heart-felt moments as you see these two unlikely groups coming together for moments of much-needed mutual support and respect. The fact that it is based on a true story is also somewhat amazing, given the time period and its corresponding political culture.
The film was well-received when it played Cannes, and cast is pretty fantastic, including Paddy Considine, Imelda Staunton, Bill Nighy, Dominic West and Andrew Scott. Plus, I'm on board with just about anything that allows me to see Imelda Staunton starting a fistfight.
PRIDE hits the U.K. on September 12th, and opens in the U.S. on September 19th.
What do you guys think?
