    Gabourey Sidibe was fantastic in her role as Precious. The Casting was great for the entire cast. MoNique, totally transforemed to a person you love to hate.

    The actresses seem so realistic. It made me want to reach into the screen and grab Precious' mother in her lack of support for her daughter. I could not relate/nor accept the mother's attitude. What concerns me is how many other children are living in such conditions today. Hopefully all social workers and teachers can learn and be alert to children that are suffering and be as understanding, supportive and helpful.

    movie of the year!!i've seen this,perhaps my country is so traditional and grounded and this sort of thing are not even close to my life .So i felt Precious' super gross at the beginning,but in the end of it,i felt the pure and innocent she's inside.

    I continue to view this wonderful movie. After, reading the comment submitted by "mad about it with ca" I ask the person that submitted the comment: Do you want Oprah and Tyler to fix the world? Evidently your answer is YES, the issues in the movie are TRUE. Please understand the movie ended as the issues in the world end daily - unsolved. Oprah and Tyler are not governmental officials. They are entertainers. Speak with your governmental official! Enjoy the movie.

    I did not think I would want to watch all that pain, but it was so wonderful. I plan to see it again.

    I saw the movie. Excellent acting by Monique and girl who played precious. Very deep though. Hard to believe Precious was able to endure what she did and get through it. I felt sorry for her. Sometimes sad sometimes uplifting.

    This movie was openended and it does not demonstrate any solutions. It opened up a can of worms but never produced any sound meaning. The movie introduced some strong problems that american face on a daily basis but does not offer any hope or demonstrate how a person can receive services and get the help needed. As a therapist if a person comes to this movie looking for a way out due to having dealt with these types of issues or conditions experienced in this movie they left out worse off then they came. The movie dealt with several major types of child abuse such as physical sexual emotional and mental but does not ever show any one why they should reach out for help or how reaching would be helpful. Every adult failed this child including the grandmother, social worker agents of the state who was obligated to report abuse, teacher, and hospital. The parents should have been arrested. This movie had no purpose or hope to improve the community. I can not believe that Tyler Perry and Oprah both signed off on such a failed solutionless movie. I expected more from both of them. I was highly disappointed and strongly don't recommend this movie to anyone. What waste! This movie could have been used in a very helpful manner. This movie could have help the africian american community individuals currently living in similiar situation offer solutions and hope. The diagnosing of HIV could have been used to educate the community on how to live with the disease through medical treatment support groups and peers groups. HIV is not a death sentence any more. This movie had so much potential to be learning opportunity because the africian american community are going to run out to support this movie because of the two people they admire and respect as a role model for the community. Only to fine that are enforcing the stereotypes that have always been place on us. In closing what was the message that was hope to be gain from producing this movie. One obesity is ok and ugly at the same time. That a skinny white or near white "light skinned" lady is the better person and only white/light skinned people are the only people that can help people of color. Two Dark skinned people are dumb and unhelpful/uncaring. Dark skinned people are animals unworthy and not trustworthy. Three, people who are obese or overweight or struggle with weight issues should abused and its ok. To eat more is better. Only one person who was light skinned mention eating healthy but not offering any reasons why. Four, the name of the down syndrome child a degrading name. Offending the children with developmental disability and having this child be apart of this type of setting that contain so many offensive issues. We want people to respect black communities and support them. This movie offered more reason they people have cosigned on why black people should receive any assistance. This movie was bad timing with poor judgement. Where is the solution to correct these issues?

    I saw this movie in NJ 2 days ago. Words can't explain the emotions I went through. It was VERY difficult to watch because I know it's real & it's happening everyday. It happened to my cousin.It hurts because it tells the plight of many people of color-although it happens in all races.

    I cannot comment on the movie as I can't find it playing anywhere. The limited release is fine, but at least give some insight of how to locate where it is playing

    After seeing an advance screening of Daniels' "Precious" two weeks ago, I am still moved. By far, the most outstanding performance is Mo’Nique as Mary, Precious’ mother. From her utterance of her first insult to Precious, the audience knows that comedian Mo’Nique has been inhabited by a actress of Meryl Streep caliber. Monique’s delivery of Mary is so thoroughly convincing that it is an injustice to call her execution a performance. I'd warn viewer that the movie is difficult to finish. On several occasions, I considered walking out. The cinematic tragedy of Precious' life both beautiful and suffocating. - James Guilford

    I haven't seen the movie, but I am excited about seeing it. From the previews I can tell that it deals with some of America's biggest problems for teenagers and adults (illiteracy). Hopefully, it will inspire others to do seek help. Thanks Oprah and Tyler!

    I haven't seen the movie yet but I had the opprotunity to read the book. It was a great yet heartbreaking novel but it depicted actual events & secrets that many teens have to live with. Hopefully the cast will be able to pull it off because I'm looking forward to seeing it the movie.
