PRECIOUS: BASED ON THE NOVEL “PUSH” BY SAPPHIRE (Lee Daniels, 2009)

precious_ver3

People that complain and whine a lot should watch this movie. Here’s a moving story about an obese girl that suffered physical and emotional abuse from everyone around her. The movie isn’t a typical tearjerker; it actually feels like real life.

Credit goes to the amazing Gabourey Sidibe who embodies Precious in all aspects that it would be hard to separate the actress from the character. The rest of the supporting cast that includes Mo’Nique (frightening and ferocious and so deserving of that Oscar), Paula Patton, and Mariah Carey (yes, that Mariah Carey!) all give phenomenal performances.

It’s heartbreaking and depressing yet surprisingly hopeful.

Rating: 5/5
