Running Away from US, My Interpretation of Tyler Perry’s For Colored Girls
The question “What does it mean to be a Black woman,” is something all of us have asked ourselves at one time, or another, in our lives. Tyler Perry’s latest flick, “For Colored Girls,” has gotten me one step closer to answering that question.
The movie was an inspiring collection of the lives of nine Black women that represent the struggles and sisterly connections that detail the lives of us all.
Thandie Newton, Kimberly Elise and Janet Jackson gave the most outstanding performances, in my opinion. While I’ve always been aware of Elise’s acting chops (since “Set it Off”), Newton and Jackson kept my eyes and ears wanting more. And of course, the ever-astounding Phylicia Rashad and Loretta Devine provided the glue that held the movie together. Anika Noni Rose and Tessa Thompson provided the sweetness that made the story believable.
