Which of these British features whose protagonists belong to a same group is your favorite?

(the term "group" either mean that the protagonists can be considered as friends, co-workers, teammates, bandmates or a specific unit or that they're put together under a circumstance that drives the whole film's narrative)

Pride (I) (2014) get my vote, so far.

I am surprised to not see more Royal family or MI-6 films. I also would consider my most hated option, Spice World (1997) . It wasn't my cup of tea, but it might be somebody else's.

Does a log worry about splitting splinters?
Are Knots wood pimples?
Do trees pine for affection?
And why IS Norwegian Wood so Good?
Is Elijah Wood.......Oh, I'm getting carried away!
And now for something completely different!

Bill Holden escaped and when he got back, they talked him into leading a group of British Commandos back to where he had just escaped to blow up the Bridge on the River Kwai.

This is one of those movies that I can recite the lines of the main characters by lip syncing if you can imagine it! LOL

I know the film, one of my favorite war movies but I think it's to far-fetched to consider it a group-themed film because the core of the plot was the battle between the two officers and then the internal battle within Nicholson's own conscience and how his loyalty to the British flag and prestige ended up alienating him and ironically acting like a traitor... the mission and the group were only accessories to that spectacular and mind-blowing finale.

Oh wow, this is a tough decision. I'll have to deliberate. I love some of these movies.

I noticed one typo: (correction in bold)

the term "group" either mean   >   the term "group" either means
