Precious

Lee Daniels, USA, 2009o

Claireece 'Precious' Jones is sixteen and far from having a nice life. Her mother abuses her, her father has impregnated her for the second time, she is severely overweight and can neither read nor write. But one day she gets the chance to break out of her dreary everyday life. At an alternative school she can catch up on her graduation and experiences for the first time what it is like to be respected and loved by others.

Precious mêle avec bonheur réalisme social plombant et fantaisie onirique, humour caustique et sens du tragique, mélodrame et espoir.

Didier Roth-Bettoni

Un film à faire pleurer dans les chaumières ? Justement, non. Precious tire sa sève du ­refus du misérabilisme. Il est violent, stimulant.

Jacques Morice

Precious déroute, étonne et finit par imposer un ton singulier et un peu gonflé, entre mélo déchirant et comédie burlesque.

Fabien Reyre
