Pride (Directed by Matthew Warchus; Written by Stephen Beresford)

Why I loved this film: 'Pride' delivers a moving story about pride, friendship and solidarity. When I was not laughing at the incredible performances from the top cast, I was crying at the emotional and moving story that runs through the film. This could so easily have slipped into a tragic or an over-politically charged story, but it was, instead, beautifully written and balanced. The clear messages come through hand-in-hand with humour, all in the right places. Such a wonderful work and a credit to the British Film Industry!
