  • gritty is a good word to describe the film - it was heartwrenching and shocking, but a riveting story.
  • 4 stars good story
  • 3 stars this movie was so depressing that it makes people happy when leaving the theatre because they aprecaite their own life a little more.
  • 5 stars Wonderfully moving! Congrats to Mariah for bringing home Oscar! 5/5
  • 2 stars It made me gag. Some of the acting was good, but some of the sexual inuendo's (especially with the mother) in this film were overwhelmingly disgusting. It is awful that situations like this occurr in some people's real lives, but in no way was this film enjoyable. It made me feel uncomfortable and grossed out the entire time. I've seen a lot of disturbing films, I'm not sure why this one bothered me so much. I can understand why some would think it was a good film, but I just didn't think it was worthy of all the hype.
  • 2 stars who wants to see a movie about real life, depressing stuff. go to the movies to escape reality ppl.
  • 5 stars Precious is gritty but when you see this movie, some parts are just horrifying but soon you realize that this happens to real people. Terrific acting. Terrific style. Terrific movie.
  • 2 stars I did not enjoy this movie,the acting was vantastic but the cursing made the movie stupid and unwatchable...I was no impressed with the exploiting of those children in this movie it was unbelievable and should not of even been allowed. I'm shocked at the parents that allowed their down syndrome child to be used that way for a movie, you forgot what was important.What made you think that using the word mother Fuc*** a 100 times in a sentence would empress people and help this movie out any.I'd ask for my money back very disapointing... great acting but they were to good for this producer.
  • 5 stars Inspirational film1 Along with The Blind Side,two of the best movies of the past year.Shows what Hollywood is capable of producing ! Films without zombies,car crashes,3D ,just good films with a message that people can overcome adversity.Please, no more films like The Hangover !!
  • 5 stars A beautifully directed film! The actors and the acting was incredible. Monique is amazing.
