A Precious World
Fair warning, Swansea Love Story, a documentary that profiles young drug addicts in Swansea, Wales is incredibly sad and engrossing, it’s also brilliant and revealing. In one segment a young woman describes being forced into prostitution and molested by her own mother at 12.
In a year when the harsh realities of life have been exposed on film, this documentary has an important place. As Aretha Franklin recently said about “Precious” in an interview with the New Times… “The focus of the film is a young woman who has problems with an abusive mother, but that’s not solely an African-American problem.”
