    (NY) For Colored Girls by Tyler Perry

    “being colored a metaphysical dilemma i haven’t conquered yet”

    The movie is based on Ntozake Shange’s play “For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow Is Enuf.” Unlike the original play which featured only 7 women known by colors performing the collection of 20 poems, the movie has given each of the 20 characters names. Each of the poems deal with intense issues that particularly impact women in a thought-provoking commentary on what it means to be a female of color in the world.

    A movie based on this book:
    Star studded cast, epic directorial, breathtaking soundtrack… Before you remind me that I am Chinese and this movie is not for me – let me remind you that the issues minority women face are in fact universal and not based on racial difference. The reason why I am excited for this movie is because it powerful and emotional and of cultural importance.
    Absolutely cannot wait to see this movie. PS, Tyler Perry, i love you even though you are a Virgo.

    Each of the women portray one of the characters represented in the collection of twenty poems, revealing different issues that impact women in general and women of color in particular.
