If Precious doesn't have you crying your eyes out, you have no soul! Gabourey Sidibe was highly deserving of the deluge of praise she got for this film, you will be uttely beguiled by her performance. Backed up by mother from hell Mo'Nique, supportive lesbian teacher Paula Patton and Mariah Carey's social services officer (casting coup or what!), this is a real powerhouse of a movie with strong women at the fore. Not many films like this get made.
