prideReviews for this film from our members:

  • Mark Hobin @ Fast Film Reviews
    • Excerpt: Pride fashions a narrative much in the way a powerful sports movie works. It creates a David and Goliath story and invites you to cheer for the underdog.

    • Excerpt: One of the rare movies that gets absolutely everything right, bursting with happy-tears emotion about solidarity, friendship, and smashing bigotry.

  • David Upton @ So So Gay
    • Excerpt: One scene, a quiet scene involving the making of the most weakly flavoured sandwiches you may ever see, typifies the film’s wonderfully observed character interactions, putting together two characters we’ve barely seen interact but know have a deep history (it’s hard to avoid in a village this tight-knit) for a gentle revelation that lies at the heart of the film’s understanding of the world.
