I. Cannot. Wait. To see this. At first I was nervous when I heard that Tyler Perry (one, a man; two, a sometimes suspect director) was adapting it for film but the trailer looks great! Plus, I spoke to the publicist for the film and she gave it glowing reviews–not just because she was the publicist but because she was a brown girl fan of For Colored Girls… the book, it was definitely genuine. Check out the trailer:
For Colored Girls... the book and the play changed my life when I was a teenager so if the movie is done well it will speak to a new generation of women in the same way.
