Truth can make a good story

On Monday night we went to see movie Pride. Movie is based on the real events around the 1984 miners strike in the UK. A group of gay and lesbian people in London started fundraising and gave money to people from mining village in Wales. Given that 1984 was early days of AiDS and homophobia was rife this support was not entirely welcomed. Eventually not only was support accepted but in 1985 hundreds of Welsh miners joined the gay pride march. Made for great theatre

One of things that struck me was how similar one of the main characters resembles a young Ron Howard.
