Two big Movies out right now are Precious and Blindside.
I suggest if you were a child victim of Sexual and/or Physical Abuse you wait for the DVD and view the movie in the privacy of your home. If you are as sensitive as I am, I suggest you catch a Matinee with a less crowded viewing. The matinee worked perfect for me. I also suggest you read the book first (Push, by Sapphire). It's a quick read, most of it written in diary form. I read it in 4 hours. I was very happy to see the movie followed the book!
I thought it was interesting that the critics made such a big deal about Mariah Carey being dressed down and made to look "normal". Actually, she looked like the same Mariah to me. Minus the Makeup of course. She looked like the average chick who relies on Makeup to be beautiful. Looks like we caught her waking up in the morning. I also don't doubt that Mustache was hers. Monique was asked not to shave her arms for the part and Mariah is no different.
All in all it was an intense, very real, and deep movie. Leave the kids and husband/boyfriend at home... grab a girlfriend and go see Precious, but only after you've read the book!
