PreciousCourtesy of Icon Film, we have passes for the Oscar-nominated Precious.

A powerful film, Precious feels almost like a contemporary take on The Colour Purple, with its story of abuse and survival. It is so good that even Mariah Carey can act in it.

In Harlem, an overweight, illiterate teen pregnant with her second child is invited to enrol in an alternative school in hopes that her life can head in a new direction. It will not be easy for Precious to break away from the chains that have made her unhappy and incapable of loving herself.

Precious has been nominated for six Academy Awards (Picture, Director, Actress, Supporting Actres, Adapted Screenplay and Editing. It’s already won a Special Jury Prize at Sundance 2009, as well as a Golden Globe for Monique’s performance as Precious’ abusive mother.

Precious is in cinemas now.
