Super Short Film Review: Precious - Based on the Novel Push by Sapphire

It's certiantly not an easy film to watch, though it has uplifting moments.  It has a ton of sad and just when you think the film is going to ease up a bit an cue the lifting strains of music indicating a promising future - NOPE - sadness smackdown of epic, nausea-inducing proportions.


I was surprised and pleased to see Precious nursing her son.  And expressing some sorrow when circumstances required her to discontinue nursing him.  But nurse him, she does - despite fitting nearly every demographic marker that would guess she'd go with formula.

You don't see the "16 and Pregnant" girls doing it.
