I usually stay away from Tyler Perry films. I find myself just absolutely insulted by his Madea series. I started changing my mind about him when a friend took me to see Alex Cross. He was simply amazing in that film and I thought "wow, this guy can actually act!". Then I saw For Colored Girls and I now have a respect for Mr. Perry that I have for no other filmmaker I have ever experienced aside from Spielberg. I read this book in college and it was the inspiration for my life at that time. When I heard this was coming to film... and that Tyler Perry was doing it... I cringed. But I need not have worried. Mr. Perry far surpassed my expectations and brought this book to life in a way that renewed its message for me. Bravo to you, Mr. Perry. Bravo.
Now, on to the cast. How these group of women did not win, or were not even nominated for an Oscar, is simply baffling. Each one of these amazing actresses put their entire being on display here. Their heart and souls were laid bare on the screen for us. This was acting at its finest. How in the world did this film get ignored at Oscar time??? How did these actresses get ignored at Oscar time?!?!? This is why I have absolutely no respect the Academy Awards. It's not recognizing the best actors/actresses, but celebrating top money-makers. If the Oscar really went to the person who gave the most outstanding performance in a motion picture then one of these ladies would have surely taken it home. It's just criminal that they were ignored by the Academy. Not even a nomination. Tisk tisk tisk, Academy. I can't say enough good things about this film. It is easily one of my top 3 films of all time.
