Fans React to the film For Colored Girls

For Colored Girls is a heavy film that follows the lives of nine women living in New York City. One fateful afternoon the lives of the women all come together as one experiences a tragic lost.

The film has a star studded cast that includes Janet Jackson, Phyllicia Rashad, Whoopi Goldberg, Macy Gray, Thandie Newton and others. Directed by Tyler Perry, the movie is based on a play written by Ntoshake Shange that was published in 1975. The play is 20 poems that come together to form a choreopoem. Perry faced the challenge of taking those 20 pieces and making them into a movie. What has resulted is a film that is causing some fans to change the way they live their lives.

The film covers such emotional topics such as rape, abortion and HIV/AIDS. The themes of the film are dark but also healing. I interviewed a few fans in Manhattan to get their reaction to the film.
