A Lee Daniels Film
I first read the book Push By Sapphire in the 10th grade and I can say its one of the saddest , but moving stories I have ever read. The Movie Precious which is produced by both Oprah Winfrey and Tyler Perry is base on Push the novel. Its a story of a extremely overweight' Illierate teenage girl name Precious played by new comer Gabourey Sidibe dealing with physical and sexual abuse from her mother played By Mo'nique. Sexual abuse from her step-father which she has a child by and one on the way and the saddest part of them all is she hasn't even finished Jr. High school yet and she sixteen years old. She finds her self with out love and care until she meets a Teacher played by Puala Patton that shows her she can be loved by not only her self but by any one that deserves to love her. Its a great, powerful, and moving story that I believe should be seen and read by everyone. The Movie also stars Lenny Kravitz, Mariah Carey, and Sherri Shepherd. I'd advise everyone to run out and grab a copy of Sapphires Novel Push because they will be sold out by November six when the film hits theaters!!!
