"For Colored Girls" Tyler Perry's screen adaptation of Ntozake Shange's play "For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When The Rainbow Is Enuf" was an excellent composition and new film classic. Perry's directing was superb and the choice of actresses impeccable. Kudos to Janet Jackson, Loretta Devine, Thandie Newton, and Kim Elise for bringing the characters to life. In a world that seems to grow more divided by technological advances, breeding the lack of more personal communication. The story was a great emphasis on the power of community. No matter what we go through somebody will always be right there standing with us. The lesson the story spoke to me was that we all have issues, we all have pain, but its in our communion and connection with the God in the people and things around us that give us support.
