'For Coloured Girls' trailer & posters

Finally a trailer for Tyler Perry's new film 'For Colored Girls', a movie adaptation of Ntozake Shange's 1975 play/choreopoem 'For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow Is Enuf'. The film follows the stories of 8 women each dealing with their own unabashedly frank story on what it means to be female and black in contemporary USA, while touching on themes such as love, abandonment, rape, and abortion.

The cast features an impressive list of talented actresses such as Phylicia Rashad, Anika Noni Rose, Thandie Newton, Kimberly Elise, Kerry Washington, Whoopi Goldberg, Loretta Devine, Janet Jackson, Macy Gray, and Tessa Thompson.

This is one of my favourite pieces of literature, In fact I made a number of references to it in my dissertation. I just hope the film does the original literary work justice.
