This is the trailer for the Oprah Winfery/Tyler Perry backed film "Precious," based on the novel "Push" by Sapphire. The film stars comic Mo'Nique, Lenny Kravitz and features Paula Patton and Mariah Carey. It's in theaters December 3.
I am featuring this because it tells a desperately underrepresented child's story. I have not seen the movie but I get chills when I see this actress as I can't imagine the courage it takes to play the truth in this role. Movies that stretch our comfort are a good thing. More to come on this movie...it feels like one that we should support.
