Yeah, here at RockyCat, we let movies age a few years before reviewing them. *cough* And I actually watched this movie back in June, so, well ... better late than never?
Okay, even if you haven't seen it yet (doubtful), you still probably know what "Precious" is about - a girl growing up in Harlem under brutal family circumstances.
Even though this movie was based on a novel and is not a true-life account, you just know that there's people out there who actually live like this, which is pretty damn depressing. And the movie is not exactly the feel-good flick of the year, but it's still pretty engrossing. Engrossing to the point that I actually felt a little guilty watching it, like I was spying on these people's lives or something.
Recommended, but be advised that this is an extremely, well, mature movie in theme. DO NOT let your kids watch this one, unless they're, like, forty or something.
