I watch a lot of movies and love lists and connections.
Get ready for archive footage of Margaret Thatcher and songs by The Clash!
- Billy Elliot (2000): Jamie Bell, Julie Walters, Gary Lewis
Billy learns to dance while his brother and family are on strike. Features a great period soundtrack.
- Pride (2014): Joe Gilgun, Dominic West, Andrew Scott, George MacKay, Imelda Staunton, Liz White, Bill Nighy, Paddy Considine
An LGBT organization supports the striking miners and find commonality between the two groups. You may not recognize all the cast members’ names, but if you’re a fan of UK film and TV (or ‘The Wire’), you’ll recognize some faces.
- Brassed Off (1996): Pete Postlethwaite, Ewan McGregor
Ten years after the miner strike, now out of work miners form a brass band.
