    I've seen a lot of disturbing movies, but this is one of the few that actually got me physically sick.
    That said, I loved it - the acting is flawless and I loved the direction and cinematography.
    They need rappers like me
    So they can get on their fuckin' keyboards and make me the bad guy, Chun-Li

    Saw this film already.

    The story is good, so is the film overall. It has very interesting parts. I don't Mariah was THAT amazing. Sure she wasn't bad but doesn't deserve an Oscar either.

    Exactly, but having said that the reason I love this film is although it's so heavy, there is some light through the cracks and there are some really enjoyable and funny moments.

    Precious as a character and Gabby Sidibe's portrayal of her have a lot of charm and humour, Paula Patton's character is great and both she and the classmates from Each One Teach One are great support to the story of this girl finding her own way in the world.

    Really glad it won Best Adapted Screenplay, everyone assumed it would be the consolation prize for Up In the Air, which won nothing in the end.

    But I'm sure people who read the book before the film will agree it's a great adaptation and is pretty faithful to the book.

    Incredible. Need to see this again, I went alone to the cinema and was felt strange after leaving. It had such an effect on me, a wonderful yet harrowing and disturbing film.

    Can't wait for the DVD to come out.
    And YAY for Mo'Nique.

    Good movie with great perfomances but somehow...disturbing.

    It makes me feel uncomfortable.

    Not in UK, and it's not a wide release anyway. The Oscars are bringing it to a lot of people's attention.

    Well once you watch the movie I think you'll know why it wasn't shown at the theaters there!

    Hmm...I just watched it.

    I wasn't blown away like I thought I would be. I also didn't find many of the scenes that emotionally moving as I thought they might have been.

    On the other hand I thought Mariah was excellent.

    After all the hype I found Mo'nique's performance slightly one dimensional although I kind of hate her in real life so perhaps that clouded my judgement...
