Trailer for Precious Based on the Novel Push by Sapphire

Movie Preview: Precious Starring Mo'Nique

Ever since Precious (previously known as Push: Based on the Novel by Sapphire) took this year's Sundance Film Festival by storm, I've been waiting anxiously for this trailer. The movie stars Mo'Nique as a mother who constantly berates and emotionally abuses her daughter, played by newcomer Gabourey Sidibe.

The trailer makes this movie look absolutely brutal and emotionally intense — but Oprah and Tyler Perry teamed up to help get it distributed, which makes me hopeful that there's some uplifting content along the way. Regardless, I'm always interested in stories that treat complicated mother-daughter relationships honestly — even if they are tough to watch.

The movie overall and Mo'Nique's performance in particular are already receiving Oscar buzz, which is pretty amazing (if a little early). I'm also intrigued by some of the other big names in this cast, including Mariah Carey and Lenny Kravitz.

The movie is targeted for a November 6, 2009 release. To watch the trailer,
