We are all Precious?
In a world where most films are made for the money and stories are effects-driven and hollow. Precious is a film that made me re-think what makes a good movie.
I didn't particularly enjoy Precious because it was a bleak and grim tale of abuse and sadness, despite Precious' resilience. However I know this is a great film because it gives us a chance to see a world through the eyes of a person who has been through so much, also the performances from Gabourey Sidibe and Mo'Nique were outstanding.
I don't think that Precious will win the Academy Award for Best Picture and I don't want it to but Sidibe and Mo'Nique are definitely in for a chance in their categories.
Overall, I think that Precious is a riveting and disturbing film but there are glimpses of hope on show here and... it's a solid film. 8/10.
P.S. Look out for my 200th rating review (I don't usually have time to write reviews but I am going to try hard for the film that goes with my 200th rating - Precious is my 193rd rating)
Thank you! :)
