Description: Lee Daniels’s PRECIOUS: BASED ON THE NOVEL “PUSH” BY SAPPHIRE is a vibrant, honest and resoundingly hopeful film about the human capacity to grow and overcome. Set in Harlem in 1987, it is the story of Claireece “Precious” Jones (Gabourey Sidibe), a sixteen-year-old African-American girl born into a life no one would want. She’s pregnant for the second time by her absent father; at home, she must wait hand and foot on her mother (Mo’Nique), a poisonously angry woman who abuses her emotionally and physically. School is a place of chaos, and Precious has reached the ninth grade with good marks and an awful secret: sh ... (more)

The Abusive Relationship In Fiction (spoilers) (6 movies items)

" Gabourey Sidibe plays an overweight, 16-year-old girl who lives in the Harlem projects with her mentally and physically abusive mother. She's pregnant for the second time by her father (her mother's boyfriend) with her only escape being momentary fantasies of a better life. She uses strong profanity, and has low-self esteem, but still has the will to persevere, especially when others attempt to help her. Mo'Nique plays her mother who is emotionally and physically abusive toward her, thinks we"
