This week's new cinema reviews

Precious (15)

(Lee Daniels, 2009, Us)

Gabourey Sidibe, Mo'Nique, Paula Patton, Mariah Carey. 110 mins.

It sounds like a relentlessly depressing pile-up of miseries: the tale of a 1980s Harlem teenager who's poor, lonely, overweight, undereducated, abused by both parents, and pregnant for the second time by her father. And it gets worse after that. But, mercifully, this doesn't play by European social realist rules, throwing in flourishes of fantasy and even comedy, and offering glimmers of hope, real and imagined, to lighten its heroine's unenviable burden. It's still a harrowing watch, powerfully performed and earnestly authentic, but even as it wallows in the gutter, it's looking for the stars.

The Princess And The Frog (U)

(Ron Clements, John Musker, 2009, Us)

Anika Noni Rose, Bruno Campos. 97 mins.

Another Disney Princess™ for the merchandising range, sorry, cinematic tradition, and the first African-American one. True to latter-day Disney form, she's capable and motivated – until she's turned into a frog, »
