Precious

28 January 2010

Icon's latest release Precious (Based on the novel Push by Sapphire) is out in UK cinemas tomorrow. 

I went to the press screening and loved it.  A surprisingly uplifting story about a girl in thoroughly depressing circumstances who focuses on self-improvement and wrestling her hopes and dreams with a tough reality. 


The characters are portrayed with raw emotion, especially Gabourey Sidibe who had only done am-dram before, and snaps to Mariah Carey for her fantastic turn as the make up-free guidance social worker trying to deal with Precious's raw and grim situation. 

Even though it's early in 2010, I think it's safe to say it'll still be on 'films of 2010' lists by December.
