Precious: Lots of Problems. Good Taste in Footwear.
Yeah, ol' PRECIOUS has it pretty tough, but hey- she does manage to keep it together enough to get a hold of some navy blue Authentics. Ahem...please see 'le movie poster.' (that's French for 'the movie poster.')
I'm not going to spoil the plot for you if you haven't seen it. However, I think the best explanation for the film is actually a bell curve that Kurt Vonnegut put in his last book. In MAN WITHOUT A COUNTRY there's this part when Vonnegut explains Kafka. Basically, things start out horribly (Damn. I am a cockroach...) and the reader thinks, "This could not be worse for the hero! Jesus!" However, the reader is wrong. This get much, much worse...to infinity. In the graph below you could interchange Kafka with Precious & there you have it. Homeslice has that oscar bagged.
