Tyler Perry is no stranger to tackling serious subject matter and neither does he shy away from it. In his latest film for Lionsgate, he has brought together quite a gathering of talented female actors for the movie For Colored Girls. With the combined strength of their star power alone, this movie could bring quite a draw.

For Colored Girls is an adaptation of Ntozake Shange’s award nominated play For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow Is Enuf.
