MOVIE REVIEW

Pride is a movie that never appealed to me when I saw the previews for its theatrical release. After all, it looked like yet another black man underdog sports movie where a bunch of ragtag kids are pulled together and taught the meaning of success under a passionate coach, face a bunch of racial conflicts along the way, and eventually come out victorious at the end. There have been plenty of movies like this in recent years and over the last several decades; Pride just replaces football or basketball with swimming. Full movie review »
