A drama about an overweight, abused girl with Mariah Carey in a supporting role doesn't exactly sound like a must-see, but Precious has been one of the most talked-about films on the festival circuit. Plus, Oprah is one of the executive producers — and obviously anything Oprah touches turns to gold. The trailer looks emotionally heavy with a few uplifting moments (thank god!), but I'll be buying a ticket to see the performances. Word is Mo'Nique (yes, the same Mo'Nique from The Parkers and Phat Girlz) could get an Oscar nom for her portrayal of Precious's mother. The film is in theaters Nov. 6.
