Matthew Warchus, Pride

London and Broadway’s Tony-winning director Matthew Warchus (Matilda the Musical, God of Carnage) smoothly segues to the big screen with Pride, an uplifting, ridiculously entertaining reveal of a true story: in 1984 a gay and lesbian group acted in solidarity and opted to support striking miners in their brutal year-long battle with Margaret Thatcher. A hit at Cannes and Toronto film festivals, Pride shows Warchus’s ability to cover serious subjects with humor and compassion. He recalls his own outsider status as a youth, growing up a vicar’s son with the wrong accent in a mining town, and memories of working with two late greats, James Gandolfini and Phllip Seymour Hoffman on Broadway.
