Both inspiring and uplefting, Pride, a 1970s film based on real life events stars Terence Howard, Bernie Mac, Kimberly Elise and Tom Arnold. In this film Terence Howard (Jim Ellis), failing to find employment, overcomes his adversities – Jim fixes up an old abandoned recreational pool hall in a Philadelphia slum with the assistance of a local janitor. But when the project is treaten by demolition Jim fights back by starting the city’s first African-American swim team, recruiting troubled teens from the streets of Philly and transforming the team of novices into capable swimmers for an upcoming state championship. In the process of this, racist, violent and unsympathetic local city officials attempt to tear the team apart – Jim must do everything in his power to convince his swimmers that victory, both in and out of the pool is within their reach. Pride is definitely worth seeing in this case, it’s a empowering movie that captivates all audiences of all races, the actors are absoluely phenomenal in their performance. Pride is in theaters now and I’m tellin you, you’ll be gald to have paid your ten bucks, it’s worth every penny!
