For Colored Girls

I fell in love with this film. Loved the poetic monologues that I can only guess were true to the original play and loved the way it was filmed with severe close-ups of all the characters. Really well done. Amazing cast, phenomenal acting. I never saw the play it was based on, “For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow Is Enuf,” a 1975 experimental play by Ntozake Shange but I thought Tyler Perry’s film was brilliantly done. It also made me wonder where Thandie Newton’s magazine covers are. I mean, honestly did American Vogue really need another Angelina Jolie or Anne Hathaway cover? No matter how much we love those girls and how much they sell at the newsstand, etc… I’m just saying… I can’t believe there wasn’t one mainstream magazine in America that couldn’t put any of these amazing actresses on their November cover. For me, the film is always as important as the actress in it. It is after all the quality of the work, right? In the end though, the film isn’t just for colored girls. It’s just for girls all over the world.
