Synopsis Ntozake Shange’s 1970s stage classic, FOR COLORED GIRLS WHO HAVE CONSIDERED SUICIDE/WHEN THE RAINBOW IS ENUF, is brought to the screen in this adaptation.[T]he do-it-all auteur demonstrates an ambition beyond any of his previous work....There's some great acting being done here...FOR COLORED GIRLS is the most mature work yet for Perry, whose emotional nakedness is as visible in this piece as that of his cast. He coaxes standout out performances from [the cast]...3 stars out of 5 -- [T]hese ladies -- even at their weakest -- carry themselves with the confidence of winners, and we cling to their strength like a life raft.Perry weaves together not just the individual stories but their arcs, sustaining the emotional tenor across the progress of nine lives.
