Storyline

In 1984 20 year old closet gay Joe hesitantly arrives in London from Bromley for his first Gay Pride march and is taken under the collective wing of a group of gay men and Lesbian Steph, who meet at flamboyant Jonathan and his Welsh partner Gethin's Soho bookshop. Not only are gays being threatened by Thatcher but the miners are on strike in response to her pit closures and Northern Irish activist Mark Ashton believes gays and miners should show solidarity. Almost by accident a mini-bus full of gays find themselves in the Welsh village of Onllwyn in the Dulais valley and through their sincere fund raising and Jonathan's nifty disco moves persuade most of the community that they are on the same side. When a bigot tries to sabotage the partnership with a tabloid smear Mark turns it back on her with a hugely successful benefit concert to which most of the villagers, now thoroughly in tune with their gay friends, turn up. The miners are defeated and return to work but at the Pride march ... Written by don @ minifie-1

Trivia

The film is set four years before the Thatcher government introduced Section 28 of the Local Government Act, which banned the promotion of homosexuality to children as an acceptable family relationship. The act was eventually repealed by the Tony Blair Labour government and Conservative leader David Cameron subsequently apologized for his party's anti-gay policies, before championing and introducing gay marriage as Prime Minister in 2014.

Quotes

Bromley: They called us perverts.
Mark: Bromley, it's time for an important part of your education. Hands up, in this room, if you've ever been called a name like that.
[all the guys raise their hands]
Mark: Now, there is a long and honorable tradition in the gay community and it has stood us in good stead for a very long time. When somebody calls you a name... am I right Jonathan?
Jonathan: Dead right.
Mark: You take it and own it.

Superb... but then I'm biased.
9 September 2014 | by n-j-terry-250-33041See all my reviews

A fabulously rich movie with a superb mix of talent relating the victories of human relationships over and above the overwhelming power of political ideology in partnership with business.

Bill Nighy plays a beautifully understated, quiet and thoughtful role in contrast to the ebullient Imelda Staunton, matriarchal doyenne of the small Welsh mining town that is the focus for solidarity expressed by LGSM. Paddy Considine as Dai is the somewhat unwitting emissary who meets with the group in London and speaks powerfully and clearly to the community there and to the rather more conservative community in his home town as to the nature of solidarity. Much humour is placed in the two cultures coming together and throughout there are themes of coming out, for both communities; the subtle and insidious nature of discrimination, the hegemonic control it exerts when backed by powerful media presentation, the opportunism of the bitter and resentful, and the damage that is wrought upon families and communities when work is alienated from the individuals identity. Jessie Cave, Ben Schnetzer, Sophie Evans, George Mackay and Freddie Fox all perform keenly and will have done their rising stars no harm here. Not sure how this film will travel internationally, a bit parochial, but then I thought the same about Billy Elliott and that seems to have done OK.

Culturally the film is a trip down memory lane, the music, the politics, the clothing and decor all take me back to 1984, the year of my eighteenth birthday, when my father was one of those striking miners, my mother and the other mothers ran the kitchen in the local church hall. Hence my bias, there is much in this film that is intensely personal.but even if this were not the case, I would still recommend the artistry of this movie and it's passion to anyone.
