Product Overview

Beloved: Oprah Winfrey (The Color Purple) and Danny Glover (Lethal Weapon series, The Royal Tenenbaums) play the unforgettable lead roles in a powerful, widely acclaimed cinematic triumph from Jonathan Demme -- the Academy Award-winning director (1991) of The Silence of the Lambs! On a difficult journey to find freedom, Sethe (Winfrey) is constantly confronted by the secrets that have haunted her for years. Then, an old friend from out of her past (Glover) unexpectedly reenters her life. With his help, Sethe may finally be able to rediscover who she is and regain her lost sense of hope. Also featuring outstanding performances from Thandie Newton (Mission: Impossible 2) and Lisa Gay Hamilton (TV's The Practice) -- you'll agree with critics everywhere who've hailed this landmark adaptation of Toni Morrison's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel as one of the year's finest films!

Their Eyes Were Watching God: Oprah Winfrey Presents Their Eyes Were Watching God, the story of a remarkable and resilient woman's quest for love and fulfillment based on the best-selling book by Zora Neale Hurston. Academy Award winner Halle Berry (Best Actress 2001, Monster's Ball) stars as the beautiful Janie Crawford, who embarks on an emotional and dramatic journey of self-discovery. Refusing to compromise in spite of society's expectations, Janie endures two stifling marriages until finally finding love in a passionate romance with a much younger man. In one of the greatest, most lyrical love stories ever written, Janie experiences all that life has to offer, from unbelievable triumph to unspeakable heartbreak.

Reviews
ReviewSource ReelViews
Review [Beloved] Beloved, Jonathan Demme's much-anticipated adaptation of Toni Morrison's novel, is a powerful and disturbing motion picture that is likely to leave many movie-goers unsettled as they file out of the theater. Although the movie probably runs a little too long and occasionally suffers from confusing editing, it is nevertheless the kind of film that stays with a viewer for days (instead of minutes or hours) after the end credits have scrolled across the screen...Beloved is one of those films that won't work for someone in search of light entertainment. Like Schindler's List, Amistad, Rosewood, and Saving Private Ryan, the movie deals with difficult subjects without flinching or sugar-coating the truth. Beloved is for those who want substance from a movie, and don't mind facing uncomfortable truths in the process. When the year is over, this will surely be recognized as one of 1998's most memorable and unsettling motion pictures. It will be a shock if the Academy does not agree when handing out Oscar nominations early next year.
