For Colored Girls (2010)
A Great Film
You know what is ridiculous? It's not this film, its the fact that people have the audacity to rate it a one star. Even if you didn't like it there must have been something redeemable in the film that caused you to sit through the entire film. One star should be reserved to the worst of the worst, and this film is not that.
I think people have missed the point of the film. It was not to brighten your day with rainbows and unicorns. If you want a feel-good movie go see a romantic comedy. For Colored Girls is about reality. Not everyone's reality, but reality for some women. African American women lead the nation in instances of contracting HIV from partners, teen pregnancy/abortion, and spousal abuse is a very real epidemic worldwide. Tyler Perry shows all aspects of life and the consequences of not taking personable responsibility for change. We see that in the extreme case of Crystal's character and what happened to her children.
We all get a glimpse of what recovery looks like. The message is loud and clear, that women who endure these trials are not alone and can endure and recover. I think that message reached it's pinnacle with Gilda and Crystal in the last scene in Crystal's apartment and her encouraging words. How one could be bored with this movie is beyond me--sure the poetry could get to be a bit tedious as it increases as the film goes on, but you have to listen to the 'words' to know why it was incorporated in the first place and not just roll your eyes because it was.
I'm sure several non-minority groups rated this film one star on principle. Perhaps the very nature of the film's name brings to mind reverse racism and exclusion. I assure you the movie is not about race. In no parts was there emphasis on the treatment of black people in a largely white society. And non-minority should in no way be intimidated by lack of non-minorities featured in this film. If you're ever in doubt of how large-scale and predominantly skewed Hollywood films are in favor of non-minorities you have only to visit your local rental store and you can see a variety of films where not a speck of color exist. Yet there is no movie made to man where an non-minority is not featured. Hating on Perry for trying to uplift a portion of the nation that has largely been ignored is pure folly.
