I loved this film. Thought provoking, hard hitting, realistic, and worth watching. Make sure you have tissues handy, you'll need them

I just finished watching "Precious". I had known about the hype surrounding the film, but didn't really feel that I would be able to identify very well with a film about inner city youth. I had it all wrong. I didn't watch the movie; I lived through it. All of the ignorance, betrayal and abuse suffered by this 16 year old girl bursts forth like a flash of blinding light upon society's dirty secrets. Not another place or another time; this place and this time. Children suffering behind closed doors. In spite of the fact that the film is based on a novel, it all rings true. It's the authenticity that hurts so much. Precious did not know what it was like to be precious to anyone. She did not know about love or respect. Abuse at the hands of both parents began when she was only three years old. She was accustomed to the frequent beatings, demoralization, servitude, and the sexual abuse that resulted in two babies by her father. Dreams and fantasies had been her only means of escape. In spite of all the obstacles, Precious learns to read and write and, through this process, she learns to communicate. She begins to see things as they really are. She has friends for the first time, and she learns what it feels like to be safe and cared for. She notes the contrast between the life she had led and a kinder world she has glimpsed. She wants a better life for herself and her children and we know, by the end of the movie, that Precious is headed in that direction. This film reminds me of "Antwone Fisher". Both films effectively address the "slave mentality" of abuse that seems to perpetuate itself from generation to generation.
