The movie Precious is a must see ! You have to be mentally prepared to see this movie because it will give you a roller coaster of emotions. It's about a teenager that is mentally and physically abused by her father and mother. She is doesn't know how to read and can barely write. She ended up having a few children by her father. She had to go to a special needs school and becomes inspired by a teacher that helps her learn how to read and write. I heard the novel goes into more detail then the movie, but the movie definitely gets the point across. Check out the trailer !
