Imelda Staunton & Bill Nighy Get Help from Gays in UK 'Pride' Trailer
There's a lot of pride for gays and lesbians going around right now as many states continue grant equal rights to allow them to get married instead of being treated like second class citizens by the law. Therefore, the timing is perfect for the British drama Pride, the true story of gay and lesbian activists who threw their support behind the families of striking miners in the United Kingdom in 1984. However, at the time, the National Union of Mineworkers weren't all that thrilled about receiving their help, forcing these activists to go straight to the families themselves. It's a story of unlikely togetherness staring Bill Nighy, Imelda Staunton, Dominic West, Paddy Considine and more, and the first trailer from the UK has arrived!
Here's the international trailer for Matthew Warchus' Pride from Pathé UK:
At the Gay Pride March in London, a group of gay and lesbian activists decides to raise money to support the families of the striking miners in 1984. But the only problem is the National Union of Mineworkers seems too embarrassed to receive their support. Not discouraged, the activists ignore the Union and go direct to the miners. They identify a small mining villiage in Wales to make their donations to the community in person, beginning a surprising partnership between two seemingly alien communities as they fight for the same cause. Bill Nighy, Imelda Staunton, Paddy Considine, Dominic West and more star in Matthew Warchus' Pride and Pathé releases in the UK on September 12th, but there's no US release date just yet.
