Pride – In Cinemas Now!
Andrew Scott stars in the British comedy drama ‘Pride’, based on the true story of a group of U.K. gay activists’ work during the 1984 strikes.
‘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 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.’
Speaking about the film, of which Andrew is very proud he said: “Having seen the film and the potential it has for a wide audience makes me really excited because I think if films can change the world, and I believe they can in some small way, this is absolutely one of them. I think you’d come out of the film feeling changed.” Pride is out now in cinemas nationwide.
