Girl's Guide to Movies

I started hearing a lot of buzz about this film a few weeks ago and couldn't wait until I got a chance to see it for myself. I can't quite describe to you my feelings about this film. It is heart wrenching, depressing, funny, sad, and amazing film. I walked out of the theater with a heavy heart for Precious Jones, and I can't imagine anyone seeing this film and feeling any different. It is not at all a light hearted film. It is probably one of the most depressing films I've ever seen in my life. Yet, I can still say I enjoyed watching this film. Precious is played by first time actress Gabourey Sidibe - and WOW what a talented girl. The other cast members included Mo'Nique, Mariah Carey, and Lenny Kravitz who all did amazing jobs. While this movie is incredibly sad, it is about hope and perseverance. If you want a deep film that's really going to make you think, go see this movie. (If you want fluff, I don't recommend it for you!)
