In case you're looking for something different than the average blockbuster at this weekend's box office, be sure to check out the just released Precious: Based on the Novel Push by Sapphire. It was the Grand Jury Prize and Audience Award winner at this year's Sundance Film Festival, and has been greatly championed by media giants Tyler Perry and Oprah Winfrey.
While its tale of an obese, illiterate, sexually abused 16-year-old may sound awfully grim, it's also a story about the hope Precious Jones (Gabourey Sidibe) discovers through her relationship with a teacher (Paula Patton) at an alternative school.
