Precious: Based On The Novel "Push" By Sapphire
Some movies are forgotten not long after you leave the theatre and there are those that stay with you for a long time. Today, I saw the film Precious: Based On The Novel "Push" By Sapphire. This film truly moved me to tears. It was raw, intense and emotionally draining. The performance of the lead actress Gabourey Sidibe was incredible. However, it was Mo'Nique that blew me away.
The audience gave the director Lee Daniels a long standing ovation at the end of the film. He was almost moved to tears. I highly recommend this film.
