Cannes Day 10
Posted 23 May 2014
My final day here in Cannes was a perfect ending to the
festival really. I had time for one final film and opted to attempt the queue
for 'Pride' in the Director's Fortnight. After a tense, will we won't we, queue
we finally made it in and it was the most worthwhile queue ever!
This film is astounding! Funny, sad, poignant and with a
massive heart this tale of the LGSM and the Miners in one small South Wales
village during the strike of 84 will be a sure fire hit at home. There wasn't a
dry eye in the house and calls from the audience for screenings at parliaments
around Europe were wilding applauded. The reaction from this audience was the
biggest I have heard this year and was true unadulterated joy and love for the
This British film makes me incredibly proud and as they
mentioned in the q&a has the capacity to start a revolution of kindness,
support and solidarity.
Signing out from Cannes 2014, a good year!
