VIDEO: Trailer for "Precious: Based on the Novel 'Push' by Sapphire"

This one is definitely going to be tearjerker! In the trailer for the film Precious: Based on the Novel "Push" by Sapphire, we get a glimpse at the perfomances that had everyone buzzing at last year's Sundance Film Festival.

The film tells the tale of Claireece "Precious" Jones (Gabourey Sidibe), who is born into dire circumstances in late 1980s Harlem. As she struggles to rise above her lot in life, she gets help along the way from a social worker, played by Mariah Carey, and a dedicated literacy teacher, played by Paula Patton. But it is Mo'Nique and Gabourey's performances that steal the show.
