Films: "for colored girls...
...who have considered suicide/when the rainbow is enuf." This soon-to-be-released movie is based on the 1970's award winning play by Ntozake Shange. On the surface, this film may very well come off as a "chick flick," but if it's anything like the play (even a fraction thereof) then it should prove to be a must see for both sexes. While the book nor the play looked favorably upon the male species (nor, for that matter, did it even feature actual men in the male roles, just the actresses' reactions to their off-stage, phantom tormentors), I'm hoping that this big-screen adaptation will allow, at least one male character, to redeem himself. At minimum, this film could prove as a tutorial of what NOT to be in life, as men, husbands, boyfriends and friends.
NOTE: While not necessarily a true indicator of a film's quality, this one definitely offers a powerhouse of talent: Phylicia Rashad, Whoopi Goldberg, Loretta Devine, Kimberly Elise, Janet Jackson, Anika Noni Rose, Kerry Washington and Thandie Newton. (Starts Friday, November 5, 2010)
