LIFE IS A CONSTANT STRUGGLE FOR 'CLAIREECE'
on 11 August 2014
This is a powerfull drama that tells of a sixteen year old girl who is expecting her second child , both as a result of being raped by her father.
She lives with her mother and suffers constant abuse both verbal and physical.
'Claireece (Precious) Jones' imagines a very different world for herself to blot out the bad things in her life.
She aspires for things to change for her and her child, things start to work out for the better after being expelled from her school, a teacher points her to a more specialised teaching unit which together with a new social worker helping 'Precious' discover a different direction in life.
Perhaps things can start to change for 'Precious' for her, and now two children.
This is an intense film in which 'Gabourney Sidibie' shines in her first film role( as 'Precious' )
With supporting roles from 'Mariah Carey' and 'Lenny Kravitz' the film will allmost certainly hold your attenion.
