OK, Precious is a well made movie, and actors are also brilliant. The plot brings nothing new though. Even if the story is fiction, it is - shockingly enough - everyday life. Have to say this is a realistic filmography. I don't like the issues movie is dealing with, or memories and stuff how it influences on broken hearted viewers with similar experiences with Precious. With those described people, movie is nothing but expressing bad and sad memories of ours.
The movie does not contain enough hope, and the ending is just not happy enough. I sound like such a wussy, but this is the truth. Good acting and cinematography can't save this movie.
Precious is a very very predictable movie, at least for us people who have been there. If you have your s*it together and life has always been smiling to you, I guess this is pretty good shock value drama movie for you. But for the rest of us its an insult and opening old wounds. If you think "thank god this is only a movie", think again, because as I said, things like this happen every day - just not for you.
When it comes to own experiences, you already know the movie, so basically its just boring stuff and predictable humble-mumble, and only ONE of those lives destroyed, of those bad things and people that are in this world already too much. Gimme a break.
