Boy, are we glad we did! Wonderful!!
Blurb: A group of lesbian and gay activists raise money to help a small mining village in Wales which is undergoing the Miner's Strike of 1984 and results in an alliance between the two communities. Starring: Bill Nighy, Imelda Staunton, Paddy Considine, and a superb cast.
My thoughts: I liked this movie a lot. The film focused on many individual characters' growth. It spoke to different groups coming together under the cause of caring for one another. The acting was good. The film moved smoothly along. And at the end, there were movie footnotes which highlighted specific real-life people. I got sobby about the wife who went back to college and became a member of Parliament.
