Precious (Review)

Diary of a sad black woman is a powerful, gritty urban fairy tale

Do you need to know Claireece "Precious" Jones (Gabourey "Gabby" Sidibe) or an inner city girl (read: a young black teenager) like her? Does it matter how "real" she is, both as a character and an embodiment of a socio-cultural dynamic that we haven't been able to overcome? No, this film allows Precious to speak for herself, and we would be wise to simply try our best to listen to her tale. Grade: A.
