Movie: For Colored Girls

Hello Movie Goers!

The long anticipated wait is all over!!! This is a movie you must go check out!! I couldn’t wait for November 4th because I will be supporting Terry Perry opening night while others will be seeing it November 5th!!! Check out the trailer and the synopsis about the movie…..

In 1974, Ntozake Shange’s choreopoem “For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When The Rainbow Is Enuf” made its stage debut, combining poetry, dance and music, and most significantly, placing the black female experience center stage. In lyrical, honest, angry, funny and tender language, Shange’scolored girls” evoked the feelings woven into the fabric of black female life in America. Within two years, the play became a Broadway sensation, won an Obie and Tony Award, and would eventually be produced in regional theaters throughout the country. Now, thirty-six years later, filmmaker Tyler Perry adopts this landmark work for the big screen, integrating the vivid language of Shange’s poems into a contemporary narrative that explores what it means to be a woman of color – and a woman of any color – in this world.

FOR COLORED GIRLS weaves together the stories of nine different women – Joanna, Tangie, Crystal, Gilda, Kelly, Juanita, Yasmine, Nyla and Alice – as they move into and out of one another’s existences; some are well-known to one another, others are as yet strangers. Crises, heart breaks and crimes will ultimately bring these nine women fully into the same orbit where they will find commonality and understanding. Each will speak her truth as never before. And each will know that she is complete as a human being, glorious and divine in all her colors.

Lionsgate and TPS present a 34th Street Films / Lionsgate production. FOR COLORED GIRLS stars Janet Jackson, Loretta Devine, Michael Ealy, Kimberly Elise, Omari Hardwick, Hill Harper, Thandie Newton, Phylicia Rashad, Anika Noni Rose, Tessa Thompson, Kerry Washington and Whoopi Goldberg. FOR COLORED GIRLS is written for the screen and directed by Tyler Perry, and based on the stage play “For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When The Rainbow Is Enuf’ written by Ntozake Shange. The film is produced by Tyler Perry, Paul Hall and Roger M. Bobb
