Pride is a goddamn riot, there's no better way to put it. It's a film that will have you cheering for joy, laughing in hysterics and yelling for justice, all wile tears are slyly forming in your eyes, although after watching this movie you won't be embarrassed about a common thing like that. This movie will have that effect on people, I'm sure of it. Pride is proud of itself, which should be expected with a title like Pride. It sets out to do good and to show good and it's damn good. As a matter of fact, I would even go so far as to say it's one of the best films we've received this year. Yes, it's definitely up there as one of the greats.
When watching this film you just can't help but laugh, cheer and get up and dance. It's a light-hearted and watchable movie with some very powerful messages. It's set in the 80s, but you can be damn sure that its themes are still relevant now. It shows us how there's nothing wrong with being gay or even being different. It's a film about equality and being able to love who you want to love, and it delivers these messages in style.
To sum up, Pride's story doesn't always go to plan, but it's character arcs wrap up in the most perfect of ways. It's honest, sentimental, hilarious and will make you want to leap up and boogie. It's definitely among the best we've got so far this year.
