I just watched Pride and cannot recommend it highly enough. Despite being very well fixed in the 1980s, it feels very relevant.

It captures the burgeoning gay pride movement, along with the entrenched horribleness of homophobia. It also showcases the end of a strong labor movement, something that is just no longer represented in modern culture. Despite showing HIV/AIDS, individual and institutional intolerance, police brutality, and Margaret Thatcher, the message is uplifting. The ensemble cast is fabulous. I am a perpetual multitasker when watching movies, and I was riveting in my seat the whole time. I laughed, cried, and cheered. It's available on Netflix DVD, and well worth your time.
