Happy New Year it’s Episode 89! We’re starting 2019 with returning guests JoJCast’s Jo and Jay, reviewing Jo’s choice Pride.

 

Pride is a 2014 British film true story of the Lesbians and Gays Support the Miners campaign during the 1980s that supported and raised funds for the miners during the strikes.

It’s easy to lump this in with the likes of The Full Monty – Pride does have moments of humour but it’s not the driving force. Its story was very nearly lost and if you know it then you’ll realise how it’s almost unbelievable – while the film does employ some artistic license most of what is depicted is the truth. So important is its story it could have been leaden with over sentimentality or sugarcoated over some of the more serious elements.

It’s not a documentary or a biopic, it’s a starting point for learning more about the story and the work LGSM, a documentary would certainly be welcomed though. Pride has such a wide appeal that you can’t feel for everyone involved, supported by an excellent cast that includes Dominic West, Bill Nighy, Imelda Staunton and Paddy Considine is it unsurprising Flixwatcher and guests gave it a lot of love.

Scores

Pride scores very highly in all categories and overall a very respectable 4.32, highly recommended if you haven’t watched it already.
