Just back from a screening of this movie. It's a shattering, gruelling, but ultimately hopeful and inspiring movie, powered by two astonishing central performances from Gabby Sidibe and particularly Mo'Nique - a complex, monstrous character that will haunt your dreams afterwards. And yes, Mariah Carey is deeply impressive in a small but crucial supporting role. This is a major movie that we will be hearing a lot about over the next few months as Oscar season kicks into gear. Watch the trailer here.
