  • Critic Reviews
    3.5 stars out of 5 -- "Sidibe's Precious is so startlingly truthful and so subtle she seems to have stepped out of documentary to make her appearance her. Totally believable performances are also turned in by both Lenny Kravitz and Mariah Carey..."
    Box Office

    "[A] raw and riveting human drama....Electrifying."
