Precious Win Top Prize at TIFF

I get chills every time I see this trailer. Precious, a powerful adaptation of Sapphire's book Push, won the top award at the Toronto International Film Festival. The win gives the Oprah Winfery-produced film early momentum heading into Oscar season. The film, a gritty tale of the abuse and redemption of a teenage girl in Harlem, captured the festival's People's Choice award, which is voted on by filmgoers. Last year it went to best picture Oscar winner "Slumdog Millionaire.


  1. Wow. This movie looks amazing. I hardly recognized Mariah. Kudos to the producers for taking her on after the mess that was "Glitter"
