PRIDE (Warchus, UK, 2014, Cert 15)
A feel-good British comedy to liven up the January gloom, based on a true story, which received terrific reviews all round! PRIDE already has a Golden Globe nomination for Best Film Comedy/Musical (award ceremony on 11 January 2015), Best Film at the 2014 Moet British Independent Film awards and is surely a ‘dead cert’ for a few BAFTA nominations (BAFTA nominations will be announced tomorrow am and the BAFTAs are on 8 February 2015).
It’s the 1980s and a young man from Bromley goes to the aid of striking miners in Wales – with a superb ensemble cast including Imelda Staunton, Bill Nighy, Dominic West and Paddy Considine, plus a great 1980s soundtrack.
‘Spine-tingling charm by the bucket-load. I laughed, I cried, and frankly I would have raised a clenched fist were both hands not already occupied wiping away the bittersweet tears of joy.’
(Mark Kermode, The Guardian, September 2014)
