Movies on the Mississippi invites you to join us on April 12 at 1 p.m. at the Almonte Old Town Hall, when we will screen the film PRIDE, winner of a BAFTA award and nominated for a Golden Globe. Inspired by an extraordinary true story, PRIDE is an uplifting movie set in a bleak period of British history. 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.
