Movie Description(Click Here To Hide)

A heartwrenching drama film based on the Sapphire novel "Push". Set in 1987 Harlem, the main character is an overweight 16-year-old African-American girl named Precious Jones (Gabourey Sidibe). Impregnated twice by her mother's boyfriend, Precious has two children including one who suffers from Down syndrome. She's also emotionally and physically abused by her mother (played by Mo'Nique). Because she's illiterate, Precious gets into a special program that connects her with other alienated teenagers as well as a teacher (Paula Patton) who becomes her mentor and biggest supporter. Mariah Carey also stars as a social worker.
