TODAY, Tyler Perry's version of For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow Is Enuf, will appear on the big screen. Originally acquired from Ntozake Shange’s 1976 choreopoem/play, the buzz of the remake is creating discussions among critics who argue if the play was designed for the big screen.
The film is about the story of eight women whose lives we follow in New York City. Their lives tell the story of love, hurt, betrayal, and the discovery of love for themselves. History is made as Tyler Perry casts the largest all African American crew which includes: Phylicia Rashad, Thandie Newton, Kerry Washington, Macy Gray, Kimberly Elise, Tessa Thompson, Whoopi Goldberg, Loretta Devine, Anika Noni Rose and Janet Jackson.
What a line up!! I think Mr. Perry has a hit Oscar on his hands! According to Tyler Perry himself, this movie is not only for women of color, but for all to enjoy. And I'm sure many of us can relate to the subject line of the movie as well (which are common themes in Tyler Perry's movies).
For many of us who must grab the book (choreopoem) which the film is based upon, amazon.com has it available and check with your local bookstores for availability. We are excited about this movie and we will be there TONIGHT showing our support!!
