Lee Daniels Taking in Success of Surprise Hit Precious
Precious, the Opening Night film of 2009 Starz Denver Film Festival, set a limited-release record this past weekend by selling $1.8 million worth of tickets at just 18 theaters, proving once again that the festival has a knack for foreseeing surprise hit films (see Juno and Slumdog Millionaire from the past two years).
In this video podcast episode, Precious Director Lee Daniels joins film critic Robert Denerstein backstage during the film’s screening at the Ellie Caulkins Opera House in Denver to discuss the making of the film.
You can also listen to Denerstein’s interview with Precious co-producer Sarah Siegel-Magness.
