Precious was pretty dark and depressing. Great acting. I will predict 3-4 Oscars to come out of this one.
Jocan is no liar..."Precious" is a very sad movie, but man oh man, the acting (especially by Mo'Nique) is incredible. You'd swear that this is exactly how many of the folks living in Harlem go about their lives.
The wife and I highly recommend this one. Just be prepared for some pretty disturbing scenes.
Mo'Nique should pull the Oscar for best supporting actress, playing the mom.
The young lady who plays Precious is also tremendous. Would not surprise me if she is at least nominated, and would be no surprise if she also won, although Meryl as Julia Child will certainly be a strong choice.
