Featuring an all-star cast including Bill Nighy and Imelda Staunton, this British crowd-pleaser joyfully puts the protest back into pride.
At the height of Thatcher’s reign, miners unions are striking across the UK. Protesting for their own rights, a group of London gay and lesbian activists decide to raise money to support the miners’ efforts. But when they seem reluctant to accept the donation, the activists pile into a minibus and head to a small Welsh mining village to hand it over in person. This sets in motion a hilarious clash of personalities, as both sides come together in solidarity for their respective causes.

“Uproariously funny, with the ensemble bouncing off each other like an all-Welsh ping-pong match. But for every moment of humour there is a moment of poignancy, depicting two contrasting communities who are both desperate for help and support.”
