“Pride” tells the story of an LGBT activist group kept from donating money to the National Union of Mineworkers. The film is set in the aftermath of the UK miners’ strike of 1984. The LGBT activist group, insistent on helping, decides to reach out directly to a small mining village in Wales, and the two communities — the town and the activists — come together.
In this exclusive “Making Of” featurette, director Matthew Warchus, writer Stephen Beresford plus actors Bill Nighy, Imelda Staunton and Dominic West discuss how surprised they were by the true story and how inspiring the process became.
“Pride” opens in U.S. theaters on September 26. Check out the featurette below:
