Determine a feature of the movie that you would like to critically expand upon.
Identify a filmmaking quality or a story aspect that is integral to the film and elaborate on it, using script, art direction, camera work or acting elements that communicate this idea.
This will certainly be the case with Daniels’s visualization of the lead character of Sapphire’s novel—Claireece Precious Jones, who is portrayed (unforgettably) by Gabourey Sidibe.
Harking back to the tradition of neorealist filmmakers like Vittorio De Sica (whose film Two Women is knowingly snippetted in Precious), Daniels cast an unknown with no professional acting experience. She mumbles, reluctantly makes eye contact, displays little expression and even less vocal dexterity.
The very title of Lee Daniels’s film Precious: Based on the Novel “Push” by Sapphire points viewers toward the original novel, but the great majority of viewers will never take the opportunity to compare film and text.
They will never fully appreciate what was lost, gained, or rearranged, and they will never grasp where the narration has become dialogue or monologue.
If the film is a major success, the cinematic visualization may become so dominant that the reader of the novel will lose the capacity to imagine the story.
Staring at the written word, you will see the screen adaptation.
