Inspiration for Our Film

Another inspiration for our film was the film 'Precious', which itself was based on a novel called 'Push' by Sapphire. This movie shows an illiterate and obese girl who has been impregnated by her drunk and abusive father twice and lives at her dysfunctional home with her abusive mother. Her first born has down-syndrome and lives with her grandmother. The family survive in the ghetto and finance themselves from welfare.

The film poster is her walking on her own with cartoon drawn butterfly wings and a crown on top of her. This is shown to be how special and precious the girl is, the background is white to symbolise the purity of the girl, or maybe the girls character (as we know she is a mother of 2 kids).

This gave us an inspiration because of the way she carries with her life and goes on to raise her second son by herself even though she has all these domesticate problems. This is inspiring to our character as he would have to raise his kid despite loosing all his friends, not being able to go to parties and of course not being able to talk to girls (due to him carrying the baby).
