Drama . Comedy . Biography

It’s the summer of 1984 – Margaret Thatcher is in power and the National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) is on strike. At the Gay Pride March in London, a group of gay and lesbian activists decides to raise money to support the families of the striking miners. But there is a problem. The Union seems embarrassed to receive their support. But the activists are not deterred. They decide to ignore the Union and go direct to the miners. They identify a mining village in the Dulais Valley, in deepest Wales, and set off in a mini bus to make their donation in person. And so begins the extraordinary story of two seemingly alien communities who form a surprising and ultimately triumphant partnership.

More Info:
  • Michael Ordona

    Quite simply, one of the best movies of the year so far.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Dave Calhoun

    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.

    Time Out London Full Review
  • Oliver Lyttelton

    The filmmaking is admittedly functional rather than particularly artful, but you somewhat appreciate that Warchus is determined to distract you as little as possible from the story and characters.

    The Playlist Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    It's feel-good, no question about it. But it's also absorbing, important and inspiring.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • David Edelstein

    What a cast Pride has — some of the best famous actors in Britain and lesser-known younger ones that will (soon) take their place in the firmament.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Stephen Holden

    It is the kind of hearty, blunt-force drama with softened edges that leaves audiences applauding and teary-eyed.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Kenneth Turan

    Pride is an unapologetic crowd-pleaser of a movie, but it has some potent points to make, and the reality of what happened has a power of its own.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • David Denby

    Pride is brilliantly entertaining just as it is, so I trust that no one connected with the film will be insulted if I say that, despite the existence of shows with similarly stirring themes, like “Billy Elliot” and “Kinky Boots,” the story would make a terrific musical.

    The New Yorker Full Review
  • Bill Zwecker

    This film moves effortlessly from some pretty intense dramatic moments to hilarious scenes showcasing the contrasting lifestyles of the gay and straight worlds to some vignettes of incredible poignancy.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    Pride will get viewers cheering while reflecting upon how far we have come in 30 years… and how far we have yet to go.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Odie Henderson

    The Brits do this type of crowd-pleaser far better than Hollywood, if only because films like “The Full Monty” and “Billy Elliot” were unafraid to temper sweetness with darker elements of reality. Full Review
  • Rex Reed

    A joyous, well-researched and liberating film in the feel-good spirit of "Billy Elliot," "The Full Monty" and "Calendar Girls."

    New York Observer Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    Pride naively thinks it can change the world with a single movie. Talk about fighting spirit. I couldn't have liked it more.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • John Bleasdale

    It's a feel good movie but also a refreshing blast from the past, expressing a nostalgia for a time when political quietism and apathy had not won the day and a Billy Bragg song made more than historical sense.

    CineVue Full Review
  • Joe Morgenstern

    Pride may not be a model of impeccable craftsmanship, but it's a fine example of turning a terrific subject into a gleeful event. It's also an example of the power of entertainment — of entertainment within entertainment.

    Wall Street Journal Full Review
  • Bob Mondello

    It says something that 30 years after the events it depicts, Pride should feel so unexpectedly rousing. People cooperating across ideological lines? Finding common cause with folks they don't 100 percent agree with? What a concept.

    NPR Full Review
  • Stephanie Zacharek

    Pride hits some bumpy patches when it switches gears between comedy and gentle pathos, which it does often. But its spirit is bold enough to power through the rough spots. It’s easy to find fault with Pride, but it’s not so easy to resist it.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • David Rooney

    The film is funny, warm-hearted and enormously satisfying.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Charles Gant

    While some broad strokes won’t be to everybody’s taste... overall the film is so warmhearted, its themes of friendship and mutual respect so resonant, that few will begrudge it such heightened moments.

    Variety Full Review
  • Graham Fuller

    Among the actors, potential Oscar nominee Nighy is deeply affecting, but everyone in this rousing movie impresses.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Neil Smith

    A feel-good charmer with an important message, Pride will have you clutching your sides, wiping your eyes and punching the air in triumph.

    Total Film Full Review
  • Angie Errigo

    A clear winner that makes you laugh, cry, and generally want to party and parade like it’s 1984.

    Empire Full Review
  • Steven Rea

    British screen stalwarts Bill Nighy and Imelda Staunton appear as locals - he twitchy and reticent, she chatty and full of cheer, both with their hearts in the right place.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Marc Mohan

    Pride should leave audiences smiling and inspired. But it would have been a much more groundbreaking film if it had been released 30 years ago.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Ann Hornaday

    Even when it skates recklessly close to shopworn cliches, Pride manages to navigate around them with vigor, as well as disarming, even wholesome, open-heartedness.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Ty Burr

    The film’s energy is contagious.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Joe Williams

    One one level, Pride is as fake as a lip-sync revue, yet the emotions it arouses are real.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    Parts of Pride are shamelessly escapist, as when party-mad Jonathan (Dominic West) busts loose with a disco routine, surely the most outre thing ever to hit Onllwyn. But nearly all of it's engaging.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Alonso Duralde

    At its best moments, Pride makes the chest flutter and the neck hairs stand up with the revolutionary adrenaline that comes from a potent protest song.

    TheWrap Full Review
  • Lou Lumenick

    Stephen Beresford’s script’s has its cornball fish-out-of-water touches to be sure, but Pride is a bona fide crowd-pleaser — wearing its heart on its sleeve as the film builds to an ending that’s as satisfying as it is surprising.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Joe McGovern

    Celebrated theater director Mathew Warchus (Matilda, The Norman Conquests) unstiffens many of the script's clichés by affecting a sparkling, musical tone — producers have stated their intentions to bring Pride to Broadway, à la fellow miners-strike movie "Billy Elliot."

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • William Goss

    If Pride manages to be somewhat reductive in its depiction of equal rights activism, at least it’s reductive in the right direction.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • A.A. Dowd

    Manipulative but big-hearted, Pride is an ode to activism as a social equalizer, and a gushy illustration of the belief that hearts and minds can be changed, and that it’s impossible to truly battle oppression without opposing all forms of oppression. Why resist?

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Geoff Pevere

    Even the worst homophobes are viewed as simply potholes on the highway to enlightenment, and Maggie herself appears on TV only long enough to get the channel changed.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Mike D'Angelo

    No matter how much this story has been streamlined for accessibility’s sake, its import remains potent. In spite of numerous missteps, Pride gets that across.

    The Dissolve Full Review
  • Elise Nakhnikian

    The film the tough true story has spawned is as formulaically cheery, didactically "uplifting," and fundamentally false as a Disney sports movie.
