The Precious movie trailer suggests lots of physical and emotional battering for pregnant teenager "Precious" but the poster brings sexual abuse immediately to mind. It's that menacingly large spidery hand shattering the body from the crotch. Yikes.

I wish that the Precious title didn't make me think about Gollum and his ring or Buffalo Bill and his doggie because doesn't this new movie look fantastic?
