I love the movie, "Precious." I saw it last night and was moved incredibly. It is difficult not to love Precious and to completely empathize with her. The script is fantastic. It is obvious why Geoffrey Fletcher won the Oscar for Adapted Screenplay. (His acceptance speech was beautiful.) Mo'Nique also delivered a powerful believable performance and it is obvious why she won the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress. Even though her role was extremely brutal and harsh, there was even a humane tender moment for her character which was brilliantly acted. (Her acceptance speech was not so beautiful.) Gabourey Sidibe was utterly believable as Precious. And, how precious she is in this role. Sidibe was nominated in the Best Actress category. I was so inspired by two interviews that I saw with her that I wrote of her here last year and included the videos. May God bless the precious young women in such a plight all around the world.
