The Rock-itt : February 2010
PRECIOUS -- February 18th Lee Daniels's PRECIOUS: BASED ON THE NOVEL "PUSH" BY SAPPHIRE is a vibrant, honest and resoundingly hopeful film about the human capacity to grow and overcome. Set in Harlem in 1987, it is the story of Claireece "Precious" Jones (Gabourey Sidibe), a sixteen-year-old African-American girl born into a life no one would want. She's pregnant for the second time by her absent father; at home, she must wait hand and foot on her mother (Mo'Nique), a poisonously angry woman who abuses her emotionally and physically. School is a place of chaos, and Precious has reached the ninth grade with good marks and an awful secret: she can neither read nor write. OFFICIAL WEBSITE & TRAILER: http://www.weareallprecious.com/ THE BLIND SIDE -- February 25th The remarkable true story of All-American football star Michael Oher starts when the teenager is spotted by Leigh Anne Tuohy surviving on his own, virtually homeless, wearing only shorts and t- shirt in the dead of winter. When Leigh discovers Michael is in the same class as her daughter, without a moment's hesitation, she invites him to stay at her home for the night. What starts out as a gesture of kindness becomes much more as Michael becomes part of the Tuohy family despite the differences in their backgrounds. Watch for Oscar Nomination here for Sandra Bullock!
