Precious (2009)

An illiterate, obese, HIV infected teenage girl that is abused by her mother and carrying her father's baby attempts to improve her life (not sure what other direction it can go.)  Although full of melodrama, Gabourey Sidibe's performance is hard to resist .  It was more effective than I had expected.  Although the theme is ultimately one of hope this may not be the not the type of feel good film to sit down and watch with the family - if it is for your family may need to seek therapy.  Loved the fired chicken theme - was not expecting that.  7.5 out of 10
