Their Eyes Were Watching God (2005)
It's just one person's interpretation.
When I learned that this book was being turned into a film I was immediately filled with happiness then sadness. I was happy until I learned who was doing. Once I started to hear Oprah was making it I just kept telling myself this could be different. This wasn't going to be a cinematic tragedy like Beloved and some of her other efforts. But I was wrong.
But since I'd already lowered my expectations for the film I was prepared and it wasn't that bad. I have learned not to aim high for such films.
I do think that this book is a very important work as is the life of Zora and that other works like this should be made as well as film based on current time. It just has to be good. THe person telling the story must do their research. A few times during the film I thought to myself it didn't happen quite like that, but this is your interpretation and I went with it.
If you have yet to see it, suspend your belief...all of it.
