Pride. British movie that came out this year. Based on the factual story of a group of London based gay and lesbian people raising money for the miners strike in '84 and '85, and the miners union being unwilling to accept it.
Everyone I know who has seen it said great things about it.
For me, it was a painful visit to events and themes of my early adulthood. I cried from the opening scene until I got home. And intermittently for three days afterwards.
It's hardly verite, but way too close to my own history for me to be objective.
It stars Imenda Staunton, Bill Nighy and Dominic 'McNulty' West.
