An extremely hard story, Precious is severely abused with more hardships by day. Yet despite it's bleak inner-city misery the film works. It mostly threads a difficult balance between hope and despair. But more so it is a showcase for great acting. The entire cast gives outstanding performances. They propel the film from it's depths and it's successful because of them.
