precious preview

It’s crazy when a preview has a lasting effect on you — it makes you wonder what the actual movie will do. this one sent me into a depression that lasted a couple of hours, but even since it abated, i haven’t really been able to get this girl, Precious, out of my head. I think she reminds me of some of my students…oh, the sadness, the loneliness in the world, it is amazing that people bare it..

    It is interesting to me that Oprah produced this movie. It makes me think that there is a feel-good ending, but maybe that is more wishful thinking than anything, as this preview is perhaps the most depressing two minutes I have ever watched. Also, Feministing called this movie the ultimate feminist primer because it deals with so many different issues. I find that depressing too — does feminism have to be so depressing? Am I being a Pollyanna to say so?
