Synopsis: A group of gay and lesbian activists decide to raise money for a group of striking miners in small Welsh town but their efforts cause division in the community.
Stan's thoughts: Pride is the epitome of a feel good movie. It has the perfect mix of laughs with heartfelt tender moments, it is a well-rounded story, with characters you care about and has toe-tapping 80s soundtrack.
Perhaps one of the best ensemble casts you'll see in a film, there are too many star performances to mention all individually. Dominic West continues to surprise with his variety of roles, in this he is a mullet-sporting, disco-hips and it's great to see Imelda Staunton having heaps of fun as the liberal Welsh matriarch who gets a taste for life.
Then there is Andrew Scott who is movingly understated and George MacKay's delicately observed Joe who is newly 'out'. He is definitely a talent to keep an eye out for. In fact it is a film you need to watch more than once to spot and enjoy fully.
Pride is a perfectly huggable film, it is chocker full of good feelings and poignancy, laughter and tears I dare you not to enjoy it.
