But the miners are now deciding whether to fight to keep the pit open, and the future for town and band looks bleak. Although the arrival of flugelhorn player Gloria injects some life into the players, and bandleader Danny continues to exhort them to continue in the national competition, frictions and pressures are all too evident. And who’s side is Gloria actually on?
Plot: A Yorkshire coal mine is threatened with closure and the only hope is for the men to enter their Grimley Colliery Brass Band into a national competition. They believe they have no hope until Gloria appears carrying her Flugelhorn. At first mocked for being a woman, she soon becomes the only chance for the band to win.

Absolutely brilliant in a very natural way!
This film covers many issues without looking like it has set out to do so. The many issues (Including class, prejudice, poverty, redundancy, family, a passion of music, dying and many more) all come out from the idea of a community. This community being the brass band, whom all the central characters are involved in.
Don’t think this film is merely about a brass band, for the brass band is in a way the canvas at which the film is painted on. And although you might not think you like brass band music it accompanies the film really effectively.
The film is both tragic and funny, but with a real message coming from all of it. The cast are brilliant: Tara Fitzgerald and Ewan work really well together, Melanie Hill is very believable, Pete Postlethwaite is both tragic and funny, and Sue Johnston and Mary Healey are hilarious.
When you watch this film you will not feel that it could possibly have been scripted.
VERY POWERFUL, BUT VERY NATURAL!!!
This movie really touched me
Having planned on seeing this movie for quite some time, I must say I certainly wasn’t disappointed. How close you got to the characters and their lives really had me there, leaving me walking around the house planlessly for a while after the film had ended. The plot has the sort of authenticity that makes it feel like not just a regular movie, but goes beyond that.
