Lee Daniels's new film Precious looks so good. Especially the performances by newcomer Gabourey 'Gabby' Sidibe, Mo'Nique, and Mariah Carey. My friend Rio was lucky enough to see it at Sundance where it swept the awards (winning the Audience and the Grand Jury Prize and the Dramatic Jury Prize for Mo'Nique's performance). She has high praise for the film as well. I'm reading the book Push by Sapphire now. It's very vivid and blunt. It's eerie how the sets in the trailer look similar to the ones in my mind while I was reading.
