Flick Picks: Tyler Perry's "For Colored Girls"

Here is an exclusive trailer from Tyler Perry's For Colored Girls


The film is based on the critically acclaimed play For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow is Enuf. Yeah, that's a mouthful. The film stars heavy hitting actresses such as Phylicia Rashad, Whoopi Goldberg, and Loretta Devine as well as appearances from Perry favorites Janet Jackson and Kimberly Elise. Whether or not the film will work hinges on Perry's ability to capture the essence of the work rather than fall into the mood of forced melodrama that plagues many of his films. Can this film do for this generation what The Color Purple, The Women of Brewster Place, and Waiting to Exhale did for black women? We will find out soon.
The emotionally charged film is set hit theaters on November 5th.
