As a part of their "anatomy of a scene" series, The New York Times has posted a new video focusing on the film Pride. The scene includes commentary from director Matthew Warchus. He details some basic plot elements, and creative choices such as the disco soundtrack — in this scene, the crew (cheekily) selected Shirley & Co.'s "Shame Shame Shame".
In a week where "Skeleton Twins" has been so dominant, it's easy to overlook gay gem "Pride." The film is based on true events; it's the story of a Welsh miner town in financial trouble that embraces the help, and later the friendship, of a gay activist group. In the NYT video, watch as the women of the town are thrilled by an activist's campy dance, and the men are, well, somewhat more hesitant.
