Never had I watched a trailer and almost been put to tears or moved. Oprah Winfrey and Tyler Perry bring us â€˜Preciousâ€™ based on the novel â€œPushâ€ by Sapphire.
Starring Moâ€™Nique, Paula Patton, Mariah Carey, Lenny Kravitz and breakout actress, Gabourey Sidibe, ‘Precious’ debuts November 6, 2009.
‘Precious’ is set in Harlem, following the life of Claireece â€œPreciousâ€ Jones (Gabourey Sidibe), a sixteen-year-old African-American girl born into a life no one would want. Pregnant for the second time by her absent father and degredated to her emotionally and physically abusive mother’s (Moâ€™Nique) desires and wishes, “Precious” endures and perseveres through life in this gut wrenching and emotionally charged film.
Take a peek at the trailer, which sent chills down my spine:
Keep it Curvy.Confident.Chic.
