Not to be confused with:
Precious: Based on the Novel ‘Push’ By Sapphire
In Paul McGuigan's adventure, a group of
, sorry heroes, with special powers band together to take back charge of their lives.
In Lee Daniels' whatever-the-opposite-of-adventure-is, sexually-abused, obese teenager Precious (Gabourey Sidibe) has no powers and nobody to band with, but she takes back charge of her life anyway.
If they switched directors:
Precious becomes an action hero, using her obesity to crush her haters.
Daniels reveals the grim flipside to having superpowers when the group realises it can get away with all kinds of bad shit.
