Precious Jones (Gabourey Sidibe) is a high-school girl with nothing working in her favor. She is pregnant with her father's childfor the second time. She can't read or write, and her schoolmates tease her for being fat.
Her home life is a horror, ruled by a mother (Mo'Nique) who keeps her imprisoned both emotionally and physically. Precious's instincts tell her one thing: if she's ever going to break from the chains of ignorance, she will have to dig deeply into her own resources.
gritty is a good word to describe the film - it was heartwrenching and shocking, but a riveting story.
this movie was so depressing that it makes people happy when leaving the theatre because they aprecaite their own life a little more.
