“PRECIOUS” IS EASILY ONE OF THE BEST MOVIES OF THE YEAR
If you’ve been looking forward to seeing the movie “Precious,” you might be surprised to learn that MANY moviegoers have been waiting for this one to open. It’s surprising, considering the subject matter – the story of an obese, illiterate, teenage girl struggling in Harlem to survive under unbearable conditions. It’s not pretty, but the brilliant director Lee Daniels successfully adds humor and fantasy to the desperate story, plus, and most important, hope. It’s a heartbreaking but life affirming movie that illustrates the world is not ALL bad. And one can always improve one’s circumstances. Every character is well cast and the story will pull you right in. Robin Thicke’s wife Paula Patton is a great discovery as a caring teacher. This is a very special movie. Bring some kleenex when you see it.
