PRECIOUS

OPENS NOV. 13 AT THE ANGELIKA DALLAS, PLANO AND HOUSTON
The first film in history to win Audience Awards at both Sundance and the Toronto International Film Festival, PRECIOUS (presented by Oprah Winfrey and Tyler Perry), is a poignant, hopeful story based on the novel Push by Sapphire. Generating tremendous Oscar buzz, this Lee Daniels film stars newcomer â??Gabbyâ?? Sidibe as Precious – an overweight, illiterate teen, pregnant with her second child. Living in Harlem in the late 80â??s with her abusive mother (Sundance Special Jury Prize winner Mo’Nique), Precious accepts a slot at an alternative school and, through education, seeks the hope and change she desperately needs. PRECIOUS also features Mariah Carey, Lenny Kravitz and Paula Patton (DÃ?JÃ?VU).
