Pride | Film Review

Hey Guys !

Exciting news !!!!! I have new favourite film ever !!!!!

... Okay maybe that's not that important as far as your life s concerned .. but I'm excited ( I don't know if you could tell ) . Last night, me and my girlfriend had a night in together cuddled up on the sofa and whilst I lay there thinking " I live for nights like this."  she suggested we found a film to watch. Ten minutes of flicking through an endless list of movies we came across "Pride" .



So ... I'm pretty late to this party ( It came out in 2014 ) but oh my gosh it's just so so good ! Pride tells the story of a group of gay men and women coming together to support the miners during the mining strike in 1984. They create a group ( Lesbians and Gays Support Miners ) to raise money for the miners and this leads to them being invited to the miners village where they struggle for acceptance but with the help of some of the more supportive people in the village, a beautiful bond is formed.

There are so many reasons I am in love with this feel good film ! Firstly I don't know how many films based on the LGBT+  community you've seen, but I've seen a fair few but never one without an extremely graphic sex scene. The sexualisation of the LGBT+ community has always distressed me but Pride makes it clear, It's just a group of humans helping out some other humans and there's something beautiful about that.

Secondly, it's absolutely hilarious. I barely stopped laughing throughout the whole film .Thirdly , the coming together of the miners and the LGBT+ community is heart warming. The acting was impeccable, beautiful and moving. For me, Pride emphasizes how all bullying is painful and when it comes down to it, bullying is bullying. We have to support each other and most importantly, love and kindness is essential to survival. A message that I personally think is definitely worth spreading !

Have you seen Pride ? What did you think ? If not then I'd love to hear your recommendations for feel good movies in the comments.

Stay Strong <3 Stay Smiley :) 

Lots of love, Marianne xxx

  6. Oooo this sounds like such a great film Marianne! I was talking to one of my friends a few months ago who is bisexual and how everyone at one point had started asking him about his sexuality and we both thought it was sad that people have to "announce" who they are into, at the end of the day love is love and that should be accepted for what it is ... LOVE <3 I do thinks it's great that there is a community where people are accepted for who they are and can feel supported and connected, the world has a lot of catching up to do <3 xoxo

    1. Yes it is really sad especially that even now there are countries where you'll die for something like who you love :) I think a sense of community is so important :)

  7. Marianne!!! :DDDDD Hey!!! How have you been? I hope exams went well :) Pride sounds like a good movie!! :D I'll have to find it and watch it! I completely agree that almost every LGBT+ movie I have ever came across usually uses sex to sell and it's honestly unnecessary.
