As political causes go, the 1980s gay rights movement and the miners’ strike seem unlikely twins. But the two issues are brought together beautifully in this heartbreaking and hilarious film, which should loom large in the awards season. It follows the true story of activist Mark Ashton (Ben Schnetzer), who pledges solidarity with the struggling miners by forming the unlikely Lesbians and Gays Support the Miners—to the bewilderment, hostility and eventual gratitude of the community. Featuring standout performances (including Bill Nighy, Imelda Staunton and Dominic West), it’s a movie that deftly juggles many different themes without ever seeming clumsy.
