PARAMUS, N.J. -- The Social Action Committee of the Central Unitarian Church in Paramus will screen the film “Pride” in the church's assembly room as part of the Social Action Film Series on Friday, May 20.
“Pride,” a 2014 British LGBT-related historical comedy-drama, is inspired by a true story.
It’s the summer of 1984, Margaret Thatcher is in power and the National Union of Mineworkers is on strike, prompting a London-based group of gay and lesbian activists to raise money to support the strikers’ families. Initially rebuffed by the union, the group identifies a tiny mining village in Wales and sets off to make its donation in person.
Directed by Michael Warchus, the 120-minute film is rated R.
Michael Patrick, a member of the congregation, will facilitate the discussion following the film.
The screening will start at 7:30 p.m. Doors open at 7 p.m. Refreshments will be served and donations will be accepted.
For additional information about the screening, call the church at (201) 262-6300.
The Central Unitarian Church is at 156 Forest Ave, Paramus.
