Day 11. Pride (2014). Directed by Matthew Warchus.

Pride (2014) score: 81%

Pride is a gloriously uplifting film which I pick at least 50% of the time that I need uplifting.

I go to the cinema a lot, but this is the only film I’ve seen where the audience stood up at the end and simultaneously cried and clapped. It might be because I was watching it in Cardiff at the time…

The story of a group of lesbians and gays from London supporting a Welsh mining valley in the 1980’s, against some of their wishes, is handled so passionately. The cast is incredible and the script goes full-circle in terms of emotions.
