Pride

There are no shortcuts to a dream.


Pride
Set back in the 1970s, and based on a true story, this is yet another sports-underdog movie, set in the world of swimming. An ex swimming champ arrives at his new job at a recreation centre. He is there to close it down. He gets sidetracked by an old empty pool, which he fills up and cleans. Soon the local kids are taking dips, and before he knows it, he is teaching them the finer points of swimming. The bunch of misfits decide they've got what it takes to enter a major swimming competition... where they will be the only black team in a pool of whites.

107 minutes.

James Berardinelli quote iconPride is one of those generic inspirational sports movies that has been cobbled together from spare parts left to rust on Hollywood's shelf of clichés and stereotypes. Take a little '70s racism, add the guidance of a strong coach, throw in minor subplots about the players, and stir.

quote iconIt's nothing great and certainly isn't able to swim laps around the competition, but it mostly works for what it's trying to be, albeit in a predictable, average way.
