Britt Reid is a spoiled little rich boy. One day, after his father dies he wakes to find that his coffee has been badly made. In a fit of rage he demands to know why! Why isn’t his coffee its usual high standard. The maid, or house-keeper or whomever that he encounters tells him that he fired all his father’s employee and one of them was the man who made the coffee. So Britt goes looking for him, and rehires Kato as his coffee & mechanic, and soon the two become best of buds and decide that they should have a great old time by being super-heroes. Only instead of doing good deeds they do bad ones, just so people don’t think they are heroes and hold the city to ransom, you understand. Not because they want to do bad things.
Dir: Lee Daniels
Writ: Geoffrey Fletcher based on the book by Sapphire
Some films you go to see purely for light entertainment. To enjoy the pretty pictures and the mindless action. Precious is not one of those films. It one that you aren’t sure you actually want to see. You know it is going to make you feel uncomfortable, and that it’ll probably pray on your mind after you’ve watched it.
