It’s the summer of 1984. Margaret Thatcher is in power and the National Union of Mineworkers is on strike, prompting a London-based group of gay and lesbian activists to raise money to support the strikers’ families. Initially rebuffed by the Union, the group identifies a tiny mining village in Wales and sets off to make their donation in person. As the strike drags on, the two groups discover that standing together makes for the strongest union of all. [CBS Films]

"Quite simply, one of the best movies of the year so far."
- Michael Ordona, San Francisco Chronicle
"It’s a joyous film, full of love and warmth but unafraid to admit that with sticking out your neck comes struggle and sorrow. Truly lovely."
- Dave Calhoun, Time Out London
"It is the kind of hearty, blunt-force drama with softened edges that leaves audiences applauding and teary-eyed."
- Stephen Holden, New York Times
"Pride is an unapologetic crowd-pleaser of a movie, but it has some potent points to make, and the reality of what happened has a power of its own."
- Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
"A joyous, well-researched and liberating film in the feel-good spirit of "Billy Elliot," "The Full Monty" and "Calendar Girls.""
- Rex Reed, The New York Observer
"Pride naively thinks it can change the world with a single movie. Talk about fighting spirit. I couldn't have liked it more."
- Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"A feel-good charmer with an important message, Pride will have you clutching your sides, wiping your eyes and punching the air in triumph."
- Neil Smith, Total Film
