This Movie Info

Lee Daniels's "Precious: Based on the Novel "Push" by Sapphire" is a vibrant, honest and resoundingly hopeful film about the human capacity to grow and overcome.

Set in Harlem in 1987, it is the story of Claireece "Precious" Jones (Gabourey Sidibe), a sixteen-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 (Mo'Nique), a poisonously angry woman who abuses her emotionally and physically. School is a place of chaos, and Precious has reached the ninth grade with good marks and an awful secret: she can neither read nor write.

Precious may sometimes be down, but she is never out. Beneath her impassive expression is a watchful, curious young woman with an inchoate but unshakeable sense that other possibilities exist for her. Threatened with expulsion, Precious is offered the chance to transfer to an alternative school, Each One/Teach One. Precious doesn't know the meaning of "alternative," but her instincts tell her this is the chance she has been waiting for. In the literacy workshop taught by the patient yet firm Ms. Rain (Paula Patton), Precious begins a journey that will lead her from darkness, pain and powerlessness to light, love and self-determination.

    This trailer touched me to my core, and made tears brim up. Intense subject matter. Monique is pulling from her soul in her acting. A definite must see!

    This looks like it's going to be a very good movie. All teenagers, young adults and some young kids need to see this movie.

    I can't wait to see this movie...every young girl that is a teen or older should want to see this movie and learn that life sometimes deals us a bad hand. To know that where I come from will not determine where I end up.

    Just from the trailer, I am touched by Mo'Nique's ability to capture the character. I did believe.Paula Patton has really grown since the Outkast movie. I am excited to see this movie. Congratulations ALL INVOLVED! Peace
