Our next Rialto Recommends selection is 2014's joyous film PRIDE starring Imelda Staunton, Bill Nighy, Dominic West, Andrew Scott, Paddy Considine, and many more. 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. The Seattle Times raved "It's a feel-good movie that does more than temporarily lift your spirits - it makes you feel a little better about the world, and about our capacity to set aside differences and clasp hands." And the Washington Post said ""Pride" leaves the viewer in the satisfied throes of all of those emotions: happy and sad, buoyed and chastened, and wondering, finally, what the world might look like if solidarity really could be forever." Sounds like a great film for this moment in time. Stream PRIDE on Amazon Video or Hoopla or rent it for a modest fee from Fandango, Vudu, RedBox, YouTube, Google Play, Apple or DirectTV HERE.
