I’ve heard superlatives like “horrific”, “terrifying”, “surprisingly funny” and “shock drama” fly around when people talk about Lee Daniels‘ sophomore film PRECIOUS. The type of movie that pushes the audience to feel the complete spectrum of emotions imaginable; this film succeeds where most others that try to tackle this subject matter fail. I can’t say enough about the performances in this movie, (don’t be surprised if someone walks away with a little gold statue in a few months) every single cast member brought their A game and Lee Daniels got performances that most wouldn’t think were able to be gotten. I have mixed feelings about the story and the impact it may have with the demographic that will most likely go to see it. Nonetheless, a must see (tissues in hand if you’re a crier).
