Mini Review - Precious: Based On The Novel Push By Sapphire

Precious: Based On The Novel Push By Sapphire (out Feb 4) is, funnily enough, based on the novel Push by Sapphire. It's a confronting story about an overweight teenager girl who has been raped by her father and abused by her mother. What hope does she have at a decent life? I had a few small concerns but it's still a very good film. Wonderful performances. Grade: A-.
