Yesterday I had the privilege of seeing an advanced screening of the movie Precious and I have just one word to describe the film. Amazing. Aside from being a great movie (fantastic storyline, great cinematography, and fantastic acting) there are 3 other reasons why you should see this movie.
- Truth – This film doesn’t sugar-coat anything! It’s is a pure, unadulterated story about the struggles of a young woman who’s past, and present are filled with pain, suffering and bondage. It is her desire to express true love for her children that sets her on the path of self-discovery and a subsequent release from bondage. This film reveals the truth about our society and though it isn’t perfect the raw imperfections are what strike you the most.
- Accountability – Once you see this film your perspective changes and your desire to see change within your own community should become a greater priority. The days of sitting around pretending young men and women, like Precious, don’t experience such sociological atrocities is no longer an option. You become accountable and are charged with the responsibility of holding your government, church, community leaders and families accountable as well. You will begin to understand that change is a responsibility not an option.
- Impact – Precious reaches deep into our society’s soul to shed light on some of the most controversial, and least discussed, social ills of our times. While it may be a story to some, for others it gives a glimmer of hope as they search for their own truth and deliverance. Precious touches your soul and makes it nearly impossible to not pray about, talk about, or write about ways to turn the page and move our society into a new chapter.
I could go on and on but I’ll just say that “Precious” has the ability to change peoples lives. On November 6th take a moment to empower yourself, your family and our communities. You simply don’t want to miss this!
