For those who haven't seen Precious: Based on the Novel Push by Sapphire, you're in for a rare treat. Just how many films come out with a predominantly black female cast? There are many breakthrough performances in Precious but the real discovery is Gabourey Sidibe.
My friend Chantelle sent me this video from CBS Evening News. It's amazing to see some footage from Gabourey's audition and the way she transformed her personality and her voice to be Claireece 'Precious' Jones.
