Everything You Ever Need To Know About Life...

... you can learn from:

Pride (2014)

Bromley: They called us perverts.
Mark: Bromley, it's time for an important part
of your education. Hands up, in this room, if you've ever
been called a name like that.  [all the guys raise their hands]
Mark: There is a long and honorable tradition in the gay
community + it has stood us in good stead for a very long time.
When somebody calls you a name... am I right Jonathan?
Jonathan: Dead right.
Mark: You take it and own it.

Today is the 26th birthday of the actor George MacKay (he played "Bromley" in Pride and he was the oldest son in Captain Fantastic too) - I just saw MacKay in the horror flick called Marrowbone a couple of weeks back (which I reviewed right here) and got to thinking about Pride and what a lovely nice little movie it is and how we need to enshrine that sucker - not let it fall through the cracks like it kind of seems to be doing. So go buy a copy of Pride, people. Support good gay cinema. And a happy birthday to George!

It really is lovely. And it deals with a large cast of characters so well. It even has a fantastic Russell Tovey cameo!
