US RATING: ****

IN STORES NOW

For once, believe the hype: This 1987-set story -- up for six Academy Awards -- charts the journey of Precious, a pregnant Harlem teen (Gabourey Sidibe), and her abusive mother (Mo'Nique). While the drama's strong as a whole, Mo'Nique is particularly devastating in her part. She's almost certain to get a gold statue on March 7. (Lionsgate, $30)
