The Dream Team

In Uncategorized on November 9, 2009 at 8:58 am

If you were like me and wanted to see the Tyler Perry and Oprah Winfrey collaboration on the Sundance winning film “Precious: Based on the Novel ‘Push’ by Sapphire,” only to learn that it was not in a theater near you. The Perry/Winfrey partnership, better known as The Dream Team according to Ruthe Stein, formed to help director Lee Daniels’ Sundance winning film Precious according to Winfrey to “do whatever I can to help you. Let me volunteer to help you get the word out on your film”; or according to Perry, to introduce the film to a larger audience. This film has to be seen, and the Dream Team brought it to the general public.

Precious introduces us to an oft familiar story to many of us–poverty, teenaged parent, single mother–a tough environment that many of our children call home. Yet, there’s a story of resilience, of compassion, of finding oneself through the adversity, through the negative environment.

In only 18 theaters, the film has grossed an estimated $1.8 million.

The film is scheduled to make wider releases the remainder of November and December. To find a theater near you, click here .
