It's a great story but I expected a lot more after reading the book. Definitely recommend watching this as it opens your eyes to things that happen in the real world..

A brave film - Precious review by AL

Spoiler Alert

Unbelievably sad in parts but ultimately uplifting. The strong narrative and performances throughout makes this truly dark story watchable.
