Mariah Carey-Starrer 'Precious' Welcomes Full Trailer


A brand new trailer for Sundance Film Festival's biggest hit, 'Precious: Based on the Novel PUSH by Sapphire', previews a dramatic look at the life of 16-year-old Claireece 'Precious' Jones.

Lionsgate Films have debuted the full trailer for "Precious: Based on the Novel PUSH by Sapphire" on Oprah Winfrey's official site, Oprah.com. Presenting a look at the hard life of 16-year-old Claireece "Precious" Jones, the video footage exposes the dramatic performances of Gabourey Sidibe as Precious, Mo'Nique as her mother, Paula Patton as her teacher and Mariah Carey as a social worker.

Set in Harlem in 1987, "Precious: Based on the Novel PUSH by Sapphire" revolves around Claireece "Precious" Jones, an overweight, illiterate sixteen-year-old African-American girl born into a life no one would want. Abused by her mother and raped by her father, she is pregnant for the second time and reaches the ninth grade without being able to read or write.

Instead of being swallowed by depression, she takes the opportunity thrown at her when she is offered the chance to transfer to an alternative school, Each One/Teach One. In the literacy workshop taught by the patient yet firm Ms. Rain, she breaks herself from the chains of ignorance and begins a journey that will lead her from darkness, pain and powerlessness to light, love and self-determination.

Originally titled "Push: Based on the Novel by Sapphire", this drama film won the Audience Award and the Grand Jury Prize for best drama at 2009 Sundance Film Festival. Directed by Lee Daniels from a script written by Damien Paul, it will be released in limited U.S. theaters on November 6.
