28 Jan Precious
I’ve Just been to checkout the flick ‘Precious’ directed by Lee Daniels. Based on the Novel ‘Push’ by Sapphire, it was an acting debut for Gabourey Sidibe who plays the title character who goes thru the mill in the movie let me tell you.
Its actually not hard to see why Oprah got on board as Executive Producer as the flick tells a very powerful story.
Exhilerating performances from comedienne Mo’Nique, who’s already bagged a Golden Globe for her role as mum of Precious, and Mrs Robin Thicke aka Paula Patton as the caring shool teacher. (Why wasnt she at my school???)
Both Mariah Carey and Lenny Kravitz are convincing in supporting roles although i did find myself over analysing their performances because of who they are. I cant see me being the only one to do this. All that said a really enjoyable film. Ladies and soft lads will probably shed a lil tear or two.
Important note: Heavy tunage from Mary J Blige, Jean Carne, MSFB and Queen Latifah on the OST. Lovin that! 4/5
