After much anticipation, the trailer for Tyler Perry’s film adaptation of Ntozake Shange’s 1975 stage play, For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow is Enuf, is here. The film shorted to “For Colored Girls” premieres November 5.
Posters for each starring lead cast member have also been released. Here we show the poster of actress Anika Noni Rose who plays Yasmine.
The trailer featuring a rendition of Nina Simone’s “Four Women” reveals quick snippets of stirring performances by Whoopi Goldberg, Janet Jackson, Loretta Devine, Thandie Newton among others.
It appears that the film’s script stays true to the original play, as anyone who is remotely familiar with the play will hear classic lines like Janet Jackson reciting “I got sorry greeting me at the front door. You can keep yours.”
Umm . . . looks like the trailer may shush our earlier doubts. What do you think? Sound off!
