Going Out has teamed up with Cinema City to offer two readers the chance to win tickets to see the Oscar tipped - and Going Out five-star rated - film Precious, plus merchandise, including a film poster and a copy of novel on which it is based.
Adapted from the bestselling novel Push by Sapphire, Precious tells the inspirational story of a Harlem girl whose struggle embodies America's downtrodden youth.
Pregnant by her drug-addicted father with her second child and taunted over her obesity and illiteracy by her peers, Clareece 'Precious' Jones's life is one of unimaginable trauma and heartache. But when she is invited to an alternative school by a social worker (Mariah Carey), she discovers hope in the support around her. Encouraged not tormented, she becomes determined to turn her life around.
The bold direction and a brave central performance from newcomer Sidibe have been stirring expectation since Sundance 2009. Anyone who writes off Precious does so at their own peril; this is set to be one of the year's big cinematic surprises and a serious awards contender.
