Precious (2009)

2009 Precious Movie Film Cinema Poster ArtThis remarkable film is filled with extraordinary performances which power a sometimes light, sometimes dark account of a teenager who dreams of stardom but whose reality is blighted by material and spiritual poverty. Teenager Precious is played impressively by newcomer Gabourey “Gabby” Sidibe.

Fully titled, Precious: Based on the Novel ‘Push’ by Sapphire, director Lee Daniels and writer Geoffrey S. Fletcher collaborated  to produce one of the best films of 2009. Fletcher’s screenplay won him an Oscar, as did Mo’Nique’s portrayal as Precious’ mother.
