Synopsis: Precious Jones, an inner-city high school girl, is illiterate, overweight, and pregnant…again. Naive and abused, Precious responds to a glimmer of hope when a door is opened by an alternative-school teacher. She is faced with the choice to follow opportunity and test her own boundaries. Prepare for shock, revelation and celebration.

Precious 8.5

The lead character’s life is so hard to accept, to digest, and yet the director managed to make it watchable without watering it all down. Furthermore, the film never falls into the usual Hollywood pitfalls of Disney-fying the outcomes; it feels real and doesn’t pander feel-good junk to the audience.
