The picture of the emaciated character from 'Lord of The Rings' is a stark contrast from the obese size of the main character in this movie.

But the word 'Precious' is common to both ...








PRECIOUS
Movie Review

© - Tom Hyland - 8-26-10

Yes Folks - it is a TEN! The REALISM captured in this film tugs at your ‘heart-strings.’

Unwanted - morbidly obese - physically abused - sexually abused - verbally abused ... raped by her own father, producing a poor Mongoloid baby ... treated like a slave by her own drug-addicted, lazy, nasty mother ... raped again, producing a second baby via incest ... this young teenager is the absolute epitome of Hopelessness!

Yet, her strength of character, sheer will-power, and the help and love given by one teacher, and a small class of similar ‘losers’ - pull her out of the depths of despair and ultimately, shows the world that there is a bright glimmer of HOPE which survives through all of her obstacles and adversities.

Perhaps pure ‘Hollywood’? But, Believable!

After you watch this film, be certain to watch each and every Special Feature!

Understanding How - the book ‘PUSH’ became the movie ‘PRECIOUS’ is truly informative.

CAUTION: Foul language in many of the scenes is so strong as to be shocking, and maybe even offensive - BUT - without it, the story would have to have been ‘Sugar-Coated!’

Real life is certainly Full of - Nastiness!

Ladies ... have ‘tissues’ close at hand!

I saw the movie when it came out as a DVD as I only see DVD's and felt the same as you regarding the life of this girl and the film in general. However I came away with a seense of utter depression due the the "welfare" mentality that breeds the never-ending cycle of "welfare" generations.
