A gritty, life-affirming tale of an abused African-American teenager's struggle to change her life in 1980s Harlem. 16-year-old Clareece 'Precious' Jones (Gabourey Sidibe) has been abused from an early age by her now absent father, and is pregnant with his second child. With a venomous mother Mary (Mo'Nique) who treats her like a servant and her school life blighted by her illiteracy, Precious struggles to cope with her seemingly hopeless life. But the offer of a place in an alternative school and the nurturing of literacy teacher Ms. Rain (Paula Patton) soon begin to transform the teenager, offering her a path to a brighter future. Mo'Nique won the Best Supporting Actress awards at both the 2010 BAFTAs and the Academy Awards for her portrayal of Mary.

Monique is just AMAZING she just eases into the role of a twisted, unintelligent and vicious excuse for a mother with such ease
Its a tough story, but the film lighten it with the music and laughter
I just wanted to bundle Precious and her babies up by the end
as a UK readers its also good to see that there IS something of a safety net for girls like Precious, I hope this is true to life
Harrowing portrayals but never fall into caricature.
My husband and I really had to listen intently to make out the dialogue.
Upsetting storyline but Precious battled through both horrific physical & emotional cruelty.
Mariah Carey is hardly recogniseable as the social worker and Gabourey Sidibe is utterly believable and outstanding in what will be her landmark performance.
Great film with all too real life topics handled in a head on, no punches held approach.
