Precious: Based on the Novel Push by Sapphire (USA, 2009)
Set in Harlem in 1987, claireece “Precious” Jones is a 16-year-old African American girl born into a life no one would want. She’s pregnant for the second time by her absent father; at home, she must wait hand and foot on her mother, an angry woman who abuses her emotionally and physically. School is chaotic and Precious has reached the ninth grade with good marks and a secret..she can’t read.
My feelings are a little bit mixed, but I’m curious. This has been getting rave reviews and Mo’Nique (one of the supporting actresses) won a string of awards for this, including an Oscar. The word that gets thrown around the film a lot is “authentic” and that’s a promising word IMO ;)

Plot: (from TMDb)
The end begins as Harry, Ron, and Hermione go back to Hogwarts to find and destroy Voldemorts final horcruxes, but when Voldemort finds out about their mission, the biggest battle begins and life as they know it will never be the same again.
I originally spotted this here. But I may as well do it again in my new format ;-P
The first half of the 7th Potter book is my favourite part of the whole story. Besides that, it’s the cast that always gets me very excited about the Potter films - so many awesome British actors, both young and old, in one film will probably never happen again after Potter. And the performances of the young cast have been getting better with every film, which has been very exciting to watch.
I’m sure I’ll be disappointed with parts of it, I always am with every Potter film, but this is obviously unmissable ;)
