This film, if you haven’t heard about it, is based on the novel “Push” by Sapphire and is being financially backed by Oprah Winfery and Tyler Perry after being a huge hit at Sundance. (OMG! Tyler Perry is using his powers for good by helping a new filmmaker! Yeah!) It tells the story of an abused back teen, raped by her father and abused by her vindictive, manipulative mother as she searches for a way out and a better life for her and her child.
That said, I don’t know if I will make it through this movie. (Can you say DEPRESSING AS HELL???) Just watching the trailer makes me cry. But there’s a 90 percent chance now I’m seeing this in a theater. As for Mo’Nique, I’ll see you at the Oscar’s, girl. And Mariah, who knew? Glitter can ACT, ya’ll!
