Hm. Beautiful...beautiful. Cinematography, directing, acting, everything. Mo'Nique and Gabourey 'Gabby' Sidibe probably give the best performances. Their characters are both abused in a way. Gabby's character, Precious, physically and sexually, and Mo'Nique's character, Mary, mentally...jealousy. Mariah Carey, a social worker, surprisingly also gives a good performance (for once).
This movie is about recognizing who we are, what we can do, what we can accomplish, and why we have to push ourselves. There is nothing that can describe this film but the film itself. Go see it.
