Just when I was about to clown the fact that Mariah Carey is in a new movie (if you’ve seen Glitter, you know what I mean), I watched the trailer for Precious and completely changed my mind.

The movie, based on the book Push by Sapphire, stars newcomer Gabby Sidibe as a young girl trying to find confidence and strength in a tumultuous environment. Mariah stars as a guidance counselor, comedian Mo’Nique plays a serious role as the girl’s abusive mother, and Paula Patton and others are also mixed into the cast.

Though I haven’t read the book, the movie looks riveting. Can’t wait til it’s out! Check out the trailer below.
