Based on the inspirational novel Push by Sapphire, Precious is the story of a 17-year-old teenager (superb newcomer Gabby Sidibe) and her battle to overcome the obstacles of her extremely tough life in late ’80s Harlem.
The film has already been widely acclaimed in the US, receiving a Golden Globe nomination for Best Picture and a Best Supporting Actress Award for the amazing turn by Mo’Nique. It’s sure to get a slew of Oscar nods, too.
