The British film PRIDE arrived
on DVD and on demand sites such as iTunes and Amazon on Tuesday.
The film, set in the early 80s, tells
the true story of a London-based group of gay and lesbian activists
who travel to Wales to help support families struggling amid a miners
strike. The unionists and activists soon discover that together they
can stand taller.
Directed by Matthew Warchus, who will
succeed Kevin Spacey as the creative director of the Old Vic Theater
London, the film stars Dominic West (The Wire), Bill Nighy
(The Men's Room), Andrew Scott (Sherlock) and Imelda
Staunton (Harry Potter films). (Watch
the film's trailer.)
PRIDE was named best film at the
British Independent Film Awards. Co-stars Scott and Staunton won the
best supporting actor and actress prizes, bringing the film's total
awards to three. The film was recently nominated for a Golden Globe
in the Best Motion Picture – Comedy or Musical category.
Andrew Scott describes coming out as “really lovely.”)
