PRIDE is inspired by an extraordinary true story. 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...

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Pride is a feel-good fact-based dramedy about a group of British gay and lesbian activists who supported the National Union of Mineworkers during the latter group's legendary year-long strike in 1984-1985. Since it's based on historical events, the movie will definitely inform teens about issues they probably didn't know much about, and it will reinforce the idea that successful sociopolitical campaigns and movements require alliances between different groups. There's some strong language ("f--k," "s--t," and more), sexual innuendo (including a shot of straight women joking about a sex toy and nudie magazine they find in a gay couple's bedroom), passionate kissing (both opposite-sex and same-sex, though mostly the latter), a hate crime beating of a gay character, and pushing and shoving between police and the striking miners. Adults also drink and smoke both cigarettes and marijuana on occasion. The movie's politics, particularly when it comes to the pivotal issues of gay rights and labor rights, are pro-Labour Party and anti-Margaret Thatcher.
