I hadn’t even noticed Pride played the Cannes Film Festival earlier this year or that CBS Films had picked up the gay rights drama for a September 19 release until only recently as I was compiling my Best Supporting Actress contenders. Ultimately I didn’t include Imelda Staunton in my field of contenders, but if the film manages to gain traction perhaps that will prove to be a mistake.
Here’s the synopsis:
The film stars Bill Nighy, Dominic West, Imelda Staunton, George MacKay, Paddy Considine and Ben Schnetzer and was directed by Matthew Warchus. It looks like it’s going to be a dramatic film with a bit of a light-hearted touch. Whether it’s a legit Oscar player I’m not too sure, but that doesn’t mean it won’t be a good movie.
