PRIDE

Directed by Matthew Warcus

I always wonder how screenwriters go about turning a real-life story into a feature film: mostly in the difficulties deciding where to take liberty with the truth in order to strengthen narrative. A relatively by-the-numbers account of a true story, Pride still bolsters a keen eye for period detail, and a strong cast having a great time on screen. Unfortunately, it didn’t quite manage to elevate itself higher than delivering a story that we’ve seen before.
