Unhappy A "prestige" film

Does anyone know what a "prestige" type film is?
Not the film, "Prestige". That's the only thing coming up in my searches.

Thanks, LA

Probably some kind of drama that could be nominated for Oscars? A biopic?

Right. A film with some substance and intelligence that's got awards potential, but not necessarily wide appeal.
