A Story of Hope

I went and saw the movie Precious. I love to go to this smaller movie theatre that is never too crowded, and I usually go by myself. My time! I have wanted and not wanted to see this movie. I guess I was kind of afraid to see it having read a bit about the movie and knowing it's based on a true story. I think the movie, Slumdog Millionaire has scarred me for life! The one thing that just continued pop out during the movie was it was a story about hope and determination! As tough as it was to watch during different parts, Precious had such determination to improve her life and make a better world for her little daughter and baby son. But getting to that point in her life was quite the story. I always feel life is about choices. We can either "accept" our situations and moan, groan, and complain about them, or we can make a conscious decision to make a positive change for the better. Sometimes change doesn't happen right away, as in Precious' situation. But when you keep that "hope" alive in your heart, nothing can stop you! If you get a chance, please go see this movie. You are reminded how unimportant the little stuff is in life, and how very far you can go in life if you are determined and never lose that "hope" in your heart. And by the way, I "hope" that Gabby Sidibe gets the Oscar for her role as Precious, this girl can act!!

It is certainly interesting for me to read the post. Thanx for it. I like such themes and anything that is connected to this matter. I would like to read more soon.

I can't wait to see this movie. Maybe we can catch it between Lurch's multiple dr's appts next week! What is amazing is that this young lady is not a trained actress!

never saw slumdog - not sure i want to -

want to see precious very much - but i tend to wait until a movie makes it to dvd -

theaters are difficult for me to manage - the last one i went to was just too stressful - had to confront the young lady next to me who insisted on talking on her cell phone through the movie, hung up then proceeded to tell her boyfriend everything she talked about -

precious looks like an awesome movie - i am impressed with the acting of the young actress and also that of monique and mariah carrey - the clips i have seen are very emotional -

her road looks like a very difficult one - one that could easily stir heartstrings -

I've seen the previews and knowing its a true story just pulls at your heart. I think I'll have to wait and watch it at home, alone, with a box of kleenex.
