Review: The story of 'Precious' is a story of heartbreak, and if watching it does not break your heart, I do not know what will. 'Precious' is a powerful, to the point where I sometimes wanted to close my eyes just to take a break, but couldn't. The story of endurance, abuse, breathtaking injustice and sadness will draw you in and not let go. The performances in this film are so good that you forget that you are not a fly on the wall watching the life of a girl called Precious in all its heart wrenching truth, but just a movie goer watching actors at their craft. And that, my friends, are just what movies are about. Definitely one of the year's Must-See films, and one we will see more of come awards season.

Grade: 8
