Precious - Excellent movie.

The movie is called Precious. We watched it this evening. It was very good, very moving. It's a story so it takes its time telling itself to the viewer but it's well worth it.

If any of you are into actual films and not always smash and grab, cheap thrills and action this one is well worth watching.

That's it.

Here's the wiki for it.

if it doesn't have something that piques my interest chances are I'll never see it or if I do I'll fall asleep half way through...this seems to be one of those...

I'm not quite as enthusiastic, though I do think it is pretty good.

What I did not like was the blatant emotional manipulation, with characters that were like cardboard cutouts of good and evil. That is the fault of the director, not the actors.

I found myself getting weary of the main character, I realize she is not a professional actor but it was just a little too obvious just how amateur she is and was.

One highlight was the role of the mother, who was outstanding and deserved her Oscar win.

Yeah I agree on both fronts. At times it was a bit much and yes the mother was outstanding and very believable.
