i didn't know anything about this cool historical thing before i watched this movie. i just wanted something gay with a happy ending and it was better than i thought it would be.

Wonderful and heatwarming film

Funny and brilliant film about a fascinating slice of history and the unlikely alliance between gay rights activists and welsh coal miners in the 1980s. Many positive messages in this largely true story about tolerance , open-mindedness and loyalty. Nothing unsuitable for my 11 and 12 year olds, who loved it.
