Dancing in Dulais ★★★

Echoing the one other review for this, Dancing in Dulais is less an actual film and more a short documentation of a brief time in British social history that was (until recently, anyway) mostly forgotten. I find it hard to be critical of a film's lack of finesse or technical accomplishment when the person behind the camera seemingly had neither as their goal. It's also interesting to see the real people behind many of Pride's characters creating lasting bonds which were, really were, forged at a tough time for two seemingly very disparate groups and that the 2014 film, despite its tendency towards sentimentality, was not a total re-imagining of events.
