Pride

It’s so rare for a movie to be funny, touching, inspirational and informative without becoming too heavy-handed in any one direction.  This movie did a masterful job at weaving many storylines and themes into one neat package.  Beyond all of that… it was an absolute joy.  At different points I laughed, I thought and I got a little mist in my eye.  Is it cliched a bit?  Sure, they had to touch on a lot of areas so I think that was bound to happen.  I didn’t mind as it never crossed over into being sappy.

While watching this film I couldn’t help think of what is going on in the world in 2020.  Similar struggles exist in the world today and we know exactly how they are going to end up but there continue to be the same kind of people that get in the way.  If we work together and care for each other we can change hearts and minds – that’s what this movie taught us.
