"Pride" may not be on your radar, but it should be. It debuted this spring at the Cannes' Directors' Fortnight where the film swept us off our feet, with Oliver Lyttelton calling it in his review, "a prime display of a rousing crowd-pleaser done right." The movie is headed stateside to the Toronto International Film Festival where it will make its North American premiere, and with trailers and clips now online, there's no better way to see what it's all about.

'Pride' tells story of LGBT activists, Welsh miners

"Pride" may not be on your radar, but it should be. It debuted this spring at the Cannes' Directors' Fortnight where the film swept us off our feet, with Oliver Lyttelton calling it in his review, "a prime display of a rousing crowd-pleaser done right." The movie is headed stateside to the Toronto International Film Festival where it will make its North American premiere, and with trailers and clips now online, there's no better way to see what it's all about.

Theater director Matthew Warchus gets behind the camera for this one, rounds up a terrific ensemble of talent — Bill Nighy, Imelda Staunton, Dominic West, Paddy Considine, Andrew Scott, Joseph Gilgun, George MacKay and Ben Schnetzer — and tells the unlikely true story of LGBT activists and mining union groups coming together to form Lesbians and Gays Support the Miners to battle the policies of Margaret Thatcher in '80s-era England. The tale is told with a lot of heart, and a lot of laughs it seems.

After hitting TIFF, "Pride" will roll into theaters on September 19th. Watch below.
