Description:

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’s “colored 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 adapts 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 – Jo, 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, heartbreaks 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.

    This movie was amazingly done. There is so much pain and suffering that these characters go through that every woman can relate to in any race. Tyler Perry has always left me spell bounded with his movies because he has a way of displaying all the evil that this world has and showing that it can be over come. congratulations and thank you Mr. Perry for sharing your brilliance with us.

    WOW! Powerful movie that portrayed the struggles of WOMEN...young, old, black or in my case... white. The hardships we as women go through in a lifetime as a child, sister, daughter, lover, friend, mother. The harsh reality of sexual abuse we face from birth on because we are simply born female and the impact it has on ones life in love, marriage, families but most of all on ourselves, until we are able to forgive, not blame ourselves and RISE ABOVE.

    This movie had a very profound impact on me. In some way nearly all of the situations shown reflected some of my memories of things I have been through. Physical abuse, rape, loosing a child, religious fanaticism, unfaithful partner, self loathing etc. I saw nothing racial about it and every thing WOMAN. So it was done for Colored Girls. So what. It applies to all women irregardless of age , race or religion. I recommend all women watch this movie. Tyler Perry has done a tremendous job of hitting home on a number of serious problems in any society for Women. Am I Black? Technically I am white but in reality am many generations of multi-racial and proud of all of it. All any one of us is is the accident of our birth. Each could have been born one race as another and that is a lot of what this movie brings out too. The trials and situations these Women went through has no color. Ladies Watch this movie!!!!! It is for All of us.

    People don't want to admit it but thingslike this happen everyday. They think that is they don't talk about it then it will just go away but it won't.THings happen and you think they are too much to take but if you hold onto what is right and good and try to let go of the bad then life won't seem like such a burden anymore.

    Thanks to the army of people (like 30 electricians, 75 drivers etc) who have worked to make this masterpiece - just watched it on DVD. Nobody I feel should skip the supplements, just to understand how the plot is structured. I wish Lionsgate could supply DVDs with a French version of the dialogues. Again, thanks for such a strong plea for the Afro-American women in the States.

    I have owned this movie for more than a minute and I still find myself needing to see even now. All of his movies are my therapy but this one is my Dr. Phil good. It's like when you watch it a little hurt flakes off. What's my color you ask? Let's just say every woman is a rainbow
