Writers: Tyler Perry, Ntozake Shange
Director: Tyler Perry
What it’s about: The film follows a group of women, most of whom live in the same Harlem apartment building, as they deal with different issues that impact women.
Why you need to see it: It’s rare that you’ll see rape, STDs, infertility, abuse, and more addressed in ONE movie. Some might say there are too many stories going on, but at least one is bound to touch your heart on a personal level. Also, when’s the next time you’re going to see Kimberly Elise, Janet Jackson, Loretta Devine, Thandie Newton, Anika Noni Rose, Kerry Washington, Tessa Thompson, Phylicia Rashad, AND Whoopi Goldberg in the SAME DAMN MOVIE!?
