Cinemascope: Pride

Cinemascope is a regular blog post where I will share with you movies and TV shows I think are worth watching.

Released in 2014.

Plot line: PRIDE 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.

Most life affirming movies are so sweet that my teeth hurt, and I am delighted that this is not one of them. A wonderful story with a great ensemble cast.

You can see the movie trailer here. If you have yet to see it, this is movie worth watching.
