We know that comedies, fantasy movies, sci-fi movies etc make more money than serious dramas. So, I was really glad that Precious, a not very attractive film, did good last year. Yeah, it's not exactly news, but it's part of evaluating 2009 now that we're done with the Oscars.
Having earned 47.5 million dollars in the USA, it has proved that critics and awards can help a movie that doesn't seem like something most people would want to watch.
Will there be a Precious this year? Or more than one?
