....well what can I say? The movie was great. I mean everyone is entitled to their opinions but I think it was a great movie. Strong words of poetry flowed in and out of the movie. The cast was phenomenal I personally feel they did great!
The funny thing is, is that the situations in this movie is reality. Alot of these issues surface within our community. I do not want to tell too much in case you have not yet seen the movie, but it is highly recommended.
Here is a great photo straight from the movie below.
A little somethin somethin about the movie:
The total idea for this movie came from the 1975 play, "For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow is Enough", written by Ntozake Shange. The play was originally staged in California, but it’s found success both off- and on-Broadway -- the Broadway adaptation won a Tony is 1977 for best play.
For Colored Girls tells the story of nine different women through poetry. It follows the women as they deal with many of life’s challenges, including love, heartbreak, rape and abortion. The women use their bond as strength to make it through the challenges and come out stronger on the other side. The main goal behind the original play was to showcase the strength of women and it definitely succeeded.
Perry is known for bringing out the star power for his films, and For Colored Girls is no exception. The cast includes Janet Jackson, Whoopi Goldberg, Thandi Newton, Kerry Washington, Phylicia Rashad and Macy Gray. The stars bring A-list talent and depth to sensitive subject matter, and they make it relatable to women of all racial backgrounds
