Pride movie quotes tell the true story of the 1984 UK miners' strike and the group of gay and lesbian supporters who came to their rescue. The British drama movie was directed by Matthew Warchus using a screenplay by Stephen Beresford. After rave reviews following its premiere at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival, Pride opened in the United Kingdom on September 12, 2014, then in the United States on September 26, 2014.

In Pride, the 1984 UK miners' strike is in full force with the government announcing that it would be closing numerous pits and leaving tens of thousands without jobs, something that would assuredly cripple the communities who rely on mining to support them. A group (including Dominic West and Ben Schnetzer) of gay and lesbian activists, who know what it's like to face adversity, decide to step in to help the displaced families affected.

But since most miners' unions were not exactly eager to welcome gay and lesbian activists to their corner, the group decides to pick a small city in Wales and focus their efforts there. While their reception by those in the city isn't completely warm, they are appreciated by leaders Dai (Paddy Considine), Cliff (Bill Nighy) and Hefina (Imelda Staunton) and the two groups go on to completely change the strike and the world forever.

Pride is just one of several stellar films in theaters in September 2014 along with The Equalizer, The Boxtrolls, This is Where I Leave You, The Maze Runner, A Walk Among the Tombstones, Dolphin Tale 2, No Good Deed, The Skeleton Twins, The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby, The Drop, The Identical, Frontera, The Longest Week, The November Man, The Congress, Life of Crime, Starred Up, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, If I Stay.
