For the scene where Stephen Dorff's character has sex with the stripper and at the end the actor does full frontal nudity, Lee Daniels shot the moment with several stages of erection, knowing the MPAA would veto the fully erect shot, and like that getting away with the one he really wanted, the semi-erect shot.

Just after Macy Gray's character talks to Dorff's character outside his mansion, she gets in the car and shuts the door. In the next shot, she shuts the car door again, despite it already being closed. See more »

Cuba G.Jr. acts very, very well. I think this is his last good movie till now; if you saw "End game", you'll understand why... Hellen M. is a great actress from the old school but in this movie shows that acting has unlimited possibilities. Yes, the story is interesting but a little bit fantastic- i'd loved the "tabu" scenes about the relationship between Rose and Mickey...the movie is about "strange" relations:Rose-Micky,Precious-Dr.Don, Vickie-Clayton.
Vickie's role in the all picture is ...almost zero; I think her only duty is to make a connection between Micky and Anthony... It's not exactly a family movie but you have to see it!
