BRIMMING WITH PRIDE AT CANNES
As Cannes Film Festival 2014 drew to a close on the 25th May, one of the British films screened which continued to be on everybody’s lips was Pride, the first produced feature script by actor Stephen Beresford. Set during the 1984 Miner’s Strike, Pride manages to winningly capture the inspirational story of how a London based group, Lesbians and Gays Support the Miners, helped a small Welsh community in their struggle within Margaret Thatcher’s Britain. Pride is tipped to follow in the footsteps of home-grown box office successes Billy Elliot and The Full Monty and we are immensely proud that five Scott Marshall clients (Sophie Evans, Neal Barry, Henry Garrett, Will Haddington and Tomos Eames) feature alongside the likes of Bill Nighy and Paddy Considine in this deft crowd-pleaser.
Pride is set for general release across the UK on 12th September 2014.
