The movie does look awesome!  The book blew me away so I was very excited to see it become a film!

There was a very interesting article about it in the New York Times Magazine.  Anyone else read it?

@ jocelyn3476 – I read the Times article (the one in the magazine last Sunday). It was really good. I have not read the book, but plan to pick it up this weekend. I like how the director is really pushing back on the Hollywood ideas of “normal” looks/weight.

I live in Maine so I doubt the movie will open here (we hardly get anything that’s not big movie studio blockbuster), but I have my eyes out for it!

@ crebre – I’ll do you one better.

The article.

It’s an interesting commentary on how the movie fits into race debate.  It talks about how we are at a time where people think balance has finally been achieved because we have a Black president and discusses how the movie, for better or worse, highlights that as far as we have come, we are not yet there.  It points out the conflict between drawing attention to negative stereotypes, which could be harmful, as opposed to ignoring them all together under the pretense that everything is fine and dandy, which could also be harmful.

Everyone who has already seen a screening has said hands down that there will be riots in the streets if Monique doesn’t win the Oscar for her performance in this thing. I’m really looking forward to it.

I had read PUSH in college and then I bought it and made my man read it. LOL

i LOVED it so much.

I just saw the preview to the movie last night on T.V. and it reminded me so much of PUSH. I didnt know that they were related though.

I will be going to see this move! Can’t wait!
