^Yeah, depressing but also empowering, powerful and poetic at least that's what I remember feeling after reading the book such a long time ago. So I'm interested as well to see the movie.

Yeah, I just hope they don't sugar coat the events that happened in the book because they're too controversial or graphic or whatever. I really want them to keep it true to the story 100%

Thanks for starting this tread. The bookstore in my city won't have the book until the 20th. I want to read the book badly in time for the movie release. But I am kind of scared to.

I cried watching the trailer. When Precious keeps saying no one loves me, no one loves me.

I know, I'm so scared to read the book. I cannot wait until this movie comes out!
I watched the Ellen and Conan O' Brien interview with Gabby. She's just the cutest.

Is this movie only coming out in selected theatres?

Right now it's only in select cities but it gets a wide release Nov. 20.
I've wanted to watch it since I saw the trailer a few months ago and I can't wait to read the book.

I cried, but not nearly as much as I thought I might, considering I cry at Kodak commercials :p It's not very sentimental, but definitely intense.

Mo'Nique definitely deserved her jury award, and when I heard Gaby interviewed, I was even more impressed with her (first-time) acting. Lenny Kravitz also completely disappeared into his character (as did Mariah Carey). Pretty impressive ...
