Precious, based on the book "Push" by Sapphire, was heart wrenching, but an excellent story. Sapphire wrote on topics most authors shy away from such as physical abuse, incest, HIV and Aids. The movie was an excellent reflection of the book. Monique and Gabourey Sidibe definitely earned their awards for their superior acting skills in this movie. Your heart reached out to precious and helped you to realize that you can find Precious all over the world today, because situations go on like this everyday, but many times we ignore it and try to shove it under the rug, but this movie brings it all out to the forefront. It is open, honest and right in your face.
