Must Watch: Precious

Tuesday, May 19, 2009

Staring Gabourey Sidib, Mo’Nique & Mariah Carey, “Precious” tells the story of 16 year old Clarireece “Previous” Jones, a 16 year old African-American girl born into an abusive and treacherous life. Pregnant for the second time by her absent father, abused by physically and mentally by her mother – she lives a life no one would want. Unable to read or write, school too is a place with little solace. However, despite these pit falls she remains strong and aware of the possibilities her future still holds – despite her current situation. This story shows the journey of Precious, from the “darkness, pain and powerlessness to light, love and self-determination”
