        Pride, The

Pride, The

The Pride takes a long hard look at lions. Bruce is weighed down by his impressive mane and is struggling with the pressure of renovations and taking care of his pride. He knows time is limited, when James, his younger, stronger, more handsome neighbour, starts peering through the windows admiring his home and his family. The drama of the jungle never seemed so close to home in this award-winning comedy that explores people's readiness to forgive, even in the face of gross moral trespasses.
