Get A Behind The Scenes Look At The Pride Movie

16 September 2014 4:06 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

“Audiences will have their sense of humanity refreshed.”

Actors Bill Nighy, Imelda Staunton and Dominic West, director Matthew Warchus and the filmmakers of Pride discuss the background of this emotional story in the new featurette.

Critics are already cheering the film. “Breakout British hit is a warm, witty triumph,” says Digital Spy.

The Hollywood News writes, “Pride really is a thing of beauty.”

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.

5 Reasons Pride’s Paddy Considine Is Cooler Than You

16 September 2014 10:29 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Paddy Considine has returned to the big screen in Pride as a Welsh miner welcoming the Lesbian and Gay supporters of the mining cause. In the film, he becomes something of an intermediary between the groups and his role is integral in the message of tolerance and understanding.

Considine has proven his skills over the years with as many dramatic and emotional performances as hilarious ones. So just what is it about Considine that makes him so much cooler than the rest of us?

1. He gives the very best stares

Just try and out-stare him. It’s the stare that just keeps giving.

Pride Review

14 September 2014 12:07 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Matthew Warchus

Starring: Bill Nighy, Andrew ScottPaddy Considine, Dominic West, Imelda Staunton

Running Time: 120 minutes

Certificate: 15

Synopsis: U.K. gay activists work to help miners during their lengthy strike of the National Union of Mineworkers in the summer of 1984.

Based on a true story, Pride follows a group called the Lesbians and Gays Support the Miners (Lgsm) who decide to raise money for the miners in a mark of solidarity. They soon discover that the miners are largely reluctant to take their donation and need to find a particular community willing to work with them.

Their search takes them to a small community in Wales where many of the residents need some time to learn to accept their new guests. The assembled cast are sublime, with the likes of Paddy Considine, Andrew Scott, Dominic West, Bill Nighy, Imelda Staunton and many more on hand to tell the story. »

Pride movie review: hanging together rather than hanging separately

12 September 2014 3:39 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

One of the rare movies that gets absolutely everything right, bursting with happy-tears emotion about solidarity, friendship, and smashing bigotry. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

And then sometimes the forces of good win. Well, the good guys almost always win in The Movies, but not so much in real life.

Background: For a year in 1984-5, U.K. coal miners engaged in a massive industrial action that saw them walk out of work over government plans to close a massive number of pits. (The industry was at the time nationalized and controlled from Westminster.) Most Americans and probably many younger Brits will likely be unaware of this important historical event (unless they’ve seen the film Billy Elliot, which, like Pride, was set amidst the strike); the closest American analogy might be the 1981 strike »

Pride

11 September 2014 5:55 AM, PDT | Sky Movies | See recent Sky Movies news »

Gay and lesbian activists and South Wales miners makes the unlikeliest of allies in this feelgood movie focused around the 1984 coal strike. After politically motivated Mark (Ben Schnetzer) forms Lesbian and Gays Support the Miners group he fails to persuade the National Union of Mineworkers so heads off to the Welsh Dulais colliery and wins over their leader Dai (Paddy Considine) and poetry-loving ex miner (Bill Nighy). Sharp, sassy and very funny, this joins that revered company of industrial British movies Brassed Off and The Full Monty. »

Pride review: Breakout British hit is a warm, witty triumph

10 September 2014 10:11 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director Matthew Warchus; Screenwriter Stephen Beresford; Starring: Bill Nighy, Andrew Scott, Imelda Staunton, Dominic West, Paddy Considine; Running time: 120 mins; Certificate: 15

Writing an essentially feel-good movie about a group of gay men and women in the 1980s is no mean feat for a few very obvious reasons, and yet Matthew Warchus's homegrown breakout hit Pride walks the tonal tightrope with aplomb. Its very British brand of wit and salt-of-the-earth warmth inspires Billy Elliot and Full Monty comparisons, but first-time writer Stephen Beresford doesn't gloss over the darker corners of the true story he's adapting.

We begin at the 1984 London Pride march, where meek, closeted young Joe (George MacKay) gets inadvertently and literally swept along with a group of spirited protestors led by Mark Ashton (Ben Schnetzer), who are fed up of their message falling on deaf ears. Out of this frustration comes the idea for Lesbians and Gays Support the Miners, »

What to Watch: Tonight's TV Picks - Strictly Come Dancing, Houdini

Strictly Come Dancing: The Launch Show: BBC One, 8pm

Before the competition starts good and proper in a few weeks' time, this special episode provides us with a first look at the celebrity contestants in their sequins - and reveals who will be partnered with which professional dancer. This will be the first series of the show without Bruce Forsyth, but left in the capable hands of Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman, we suspect it'll be a cracker.

Houdini: Channel 4, 9pm

Oscar winner Adrien Brody takes on the title role in this dramatic imagining of the master illusionist's extraordinary life. The first of two parts, this episode follows the escape artist's humble upbringings and subsequent rise to fame - with focus on the strain his stardom puts on the love of his life Bess (Kristen Connolly).

Paddy Considine: I was always portrayed as angry, but I was just ill

7 September 2014 1:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The actor on why he believes he cant act, loving art, feeling lucky, and the medical condition he has just discovered

About five years ago, Paddy Considine started to ask himself a question: why wasnt he a very good actor? This enquiry led to a series of related concerns: why was he decent in some films, such as Dead Mans Shoes, but so appalling in others? Why was he able to vividly portray an angry confrontation, but incapable, for example, of convincingly picking up a phone and calling a taxi?

These insecurities will be surprising to nearly everyone who has seen the 40-year-old Considines work. Dead Mans Shoes, the eviscerating 2004 revenge drama that he co-wrote, may still be his calling card, but he long ago proved his versatility with comic performances in Edgar Wright and Simon Peggs Hot Fuzz and The Worlds End, and, respectively, understated and then wildly overstated »
