My Review:

Pride is a true story set in the U.K. in 1984. Gay activists take up the cause of helping striking mine workers and an uneasy, but interesting and ultimately successful, alliance is formed. In 1984 the AIDS epidemic was a major concern, and along with the political issues of the day, it created a harsh atmosphere for gays and lesbians. Somehow this group of forward thinking, big-picture thinking individuals were able to break barriers and support each other.

Inspiring, compelling, funny, heartwarming, and even at times heartbreaking, Pride is highly recommended.
