Professional Reviews

Variety
"[T]he do-it-all auteur demonstrates an ambition beyond any of his previous work....There's some great acting being done here..." 10/22/2010

Los Angeles Times
"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]..." 11/05/2010

Box Office
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." 11/03/2010

Movieline
"Perry weaves together not just the individual stories but their arcs, sustaining the emotional tenor across the progress of nine lives." 11/04/2010

Newsweek 9 of 10
...will make you smile, break your heart and bring you face to face with the joys, realities and pains of women of color in a way not seen on film before... - Allison Samuels

San Francisco Chronicle 10 of 10
...The effect is like watching an opera without music. Or a musical drama in which no one sings. These departures from a realistic convention never feel like static set pieces - that's the great success of the film and of the poems themselves.... - Mick LaSalle
