During the 1984 UK Miner’s Strike a group of LGBT activists helped raise money for the families affected by the strike. Because of the National Union of Mineworkers being reluctant to accept the group’s support, as they didn’t wish to be associated with a gay group, the LGBT group took the donations directly to a small mining village in Wales. The results were unlike anything seen before.
The film was written by Stephen Beresford and directed by Matthew Warchus. It is due for release on 12th September.
It stars Bill Nighy, Imelda Staunton, Dominic West, Andrew Scott (Sherlock), George MacKay, Paddy Considine, Julie Barclay, it also features Jâms Thomas (TW: Everything Changes), and Menna Trussler (Kiss Kiss Bang Bang -Bloody Torchwood).
The film has a great cast line up and involves the music of 1984, what’s not to like?
