i'm counting on my husband to take me on a date to see precious. it's based on the novel "push" by saphire which i wasn't strong enough to finish. it was too depressing and i sat it down years ago and never picked it back up.
but if the previews are any indication then this movie is fantastic. i'm thinking oscar for miss monique just from the previews. paula patton, mariah carey, sheri shepard and gabby sidibe, who plays precious join monique in the story of an illiterate teen who struggles to overcome abuse at the hands of her parents.
