I don't normally 'do'

movie reviews...

I leave that to the 'experts'..


I was so 'affected' by the movie


that I'm still not sure how I'm feeling about it.

Dear Lord, talk about depressing...

even the 'upbeat' ending

left me somewhat 'empty'..

I did get a little 'lost' from time to time..

I guess when Precious went into her 'fantasy world' to escape

the horrific abuse that was her life..

I think what affected me most..

was the knowledge that 

this shit really does happen.

I haven't seen the movie but pretty much every review I've read is positive. Might have to check it out!

I've been wanting to see this and kind of avoiding it too... I am also disturbed that this is a true story.

Thanks for visiting my blog by the way! You have a ton of interesting stuff over here! I'll be back!!!

It was a good far as the acting..etc. goes...kudos to both Mariah and Lenny K - as well as the lead role's just the storyline that was so very 'heavy'.

I had to watch a couple of Parenthood's that I wouldn't fall into a depression of sorts.
