There’s only one place for a movie about homophobia and class unrest to go: a pride parade. But before the movie gets there, forsaken sons return to and walk out on their mothers, lessons are learned and tears are shed — mine included… Warchus opts… to make a kind of vibrantly acted musical, one that doesn’t stint on the politics but makes them digestible, one that stages the dance sequences in the town hall as if everyone’s lives depended on their energy.

This feels like a musical in its unrelenting sunniness and broad performances (dancing also figures in the plot); I had a hard time resisting its charm.

Pride" leaves me feeling targeted. It conveys the filmmakers’ apparent presumption that the art-house audience and the critics who are part of that audience share the movie’s values. I’m pleased when the world at large acts to advance those values and angry when it doesn’t. But I’m not sufficiently pleased to see a movie like “Pride” that only reinforces my values.
