Precious Hope

I was just writing the other day about how Lee Daniels' Precious really needs Oscar attention to finagle itself an Australian cinematic release due to movies about African Americans generally getting only belated direct-to-DVD releases here. Well I was delighted to see today on the Twitter feed for abcatthemovies (aka David Stratton and Margaret Pomeranz) this:

That's encouraging at least! I can only imagine what went their Margaret's mind (I'm assuming it'll be her as it seems more like a fit for her) when she saw she was going to be interviewing Mariah Carey! Hopefully this means somebody out there is working to get this exceptional-looking film an Aussie release.

it'll certainly be interesting to see how Precious figures into this years film landscape.

Hope you get to see it before it's too stale. :-)
