Making the Grades

Release Date: 5 November 2010 (Limited)

Because we only review G, PG, and PG-13 movies at Parent Previews we did not review this limited release title. For your convenience, we have provided some brief information about the film’s synopsis and content.

Synopsis:

Based on a play by Ntozake Shange, For Colored Girls looks at a group of black women attending the same recovery group, and the different personal experiences that brought them together. This is a serious dramatic piece even though it is directed by Tyler Perry, who is better known for his comedic work.

Home Video Viewing Alternatives

Here are some ideas for home video titles that are related to For Colored Girls.

The movie is based on Ntozake Shange’s play For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow Is Enuf.

Actor/director Tyler Perry has tackled race-related issues before, but usually from a humorous perspective, as in Madea’s Family Reunion. Other movies that show characters attempting to overcome additions and/or life traumas include Antwone Fisher, 28 Days, Confessions of a Shopaholic and Bounce.
