Film crew ad actors filming on the set of BBC production 'Pride' on October 20, 2013 in London, England The large ensemble cast will be led by Bill Nighy and Imelda Staunton with the other roles played by a host of well-known British actors including Dominic West, Paddy Considine and Joseph Gilgu as well as relatively new faces such as Ben Schnetzer, and George MacKay. It’s the summer of 1984 – Margaret Thatcher is in power and the National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) is on strike. At the Gay Pride March in London, a group of gay and lesbian activists decides to raise money to support the families of the striking miners. But there is a problem. The Union seems embarrassed to receive their support. But the activists are not deterred. They decide to ignore the Union and go direct to the miners. They identify a mining village in deepest Wales and set off in a mini bus to make their donation in person. And so begins the extraordinary story of two seemingly alien communities who form a surprising and ultimately triumphant partnership.
