Pride To Premiere at Toronto Intl. Film Festival

Pride will have its North American Premiere at the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival. Pride: Directed by Tony Award® winner Matthew Warchus (God of Carnage) adapted from a screenplay by Stephen Beresford. Pride is inspired by a true story. In 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. Starring Bill Nighy (The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel), Imelda Staunton (Maleficent), Dominic West (The Hour), Paddy Considine (Submarine), Andrew Scott (Sherlock), Joseph Gilgun (Lockout), George MacKay (How I Live Now) and Ben Schnetzer (Warcraft). The film will appear in theaters September 19.
