All words that accurately describe Precious, the recently released movie based on the novel Push by Sapphire.
As was leaving the theater, I couldn't help but wonder if the story is based on fact. But, whether or not it is a true story, the fact is that there is enough reality in the story to be deeply troubling. So, while there is a lot more I could say on why this movie is so good, all I'm going to say is go see it. Go see the movie and then look around in your world, find one thing that needs fixing and start trying to make it better. It may feel like you're bailing out the Titanic with a teaspoon, but it's a start.
