This Cannes Jury-winner melds pitch-black comedy with a disaster drama. A Swedish family, on a French Alps skiing retreat, experience a ‘controlled avalanche’ and - although they are under no physical threat - the husband and father mistakes the avalanche for an actual disaster, choosing to make a run for it and leaveing his wife and kids to fend for themselves. What unfolds is a gripping look into the strength of family bonds and masculine psyche.

Pride tells the incredible true story of a Welsh mining community struggling to make ends meet during the 1984 mineworkers strike, when hope arrives with the unlikeliest of allies – a group of gay and lesbian activists who decide to raise money for the miners. A rousing British crowd-pleaser in the spirit of Billy Elliot and The Full Monty, starring Bill Nighy and Imelda Staunton, Pride is a funny, affecting and truly inspiring film about two seemingly opposite communities who unite to form an extraordinary bond.
