Precious in the afternoon at the Plaza Cinemas at Chapel Hill followed by an early dinner at Dontino's.
Claireece Precious Jones endures unimaginable hardships in her young life. Abused by her mother, raped by her father, she grows up poor, angry, illiterate, fat, unloved and generally unnoticed. So what better way to learn about her than through her own, halting dialect. That is the device deployed in the first novel by poet and singer Sapphire. "Sometimes I wish I was not alive," Precious says. "But I don't know how to die. Ain' no plug to pull out. 'N no matter how bad I feel my heart don't stop beating and my eyes open in the morning." An intense story of adversity and the mechanisms to cope with it.-IMDB Dontino's Fine Italian Cuisine is located at 555 E. Cuyahoga Falls Avenue in Akron. Their menu is available on their web site at
