Based on the classic by Harlem Renaissance author Zora Neale Hurston, the film depicts the timeless, lyrical and passionate story of a beautiful and resilient woman’s quest for love, sensual excitement and spiritual fulfillment, despite society’s expectations of a woman of color in 1920s America. Ms. Berry stars as Janie Crawford, whose journey takes her through three marriages with very different men, and during which she experiences all that life has to offer, from tremendous success to unspeakable heartbreak.
Darnell Martin directs from the teleplay written by Suzan-Lori Parks, the first African-American woman playwright to win the Pulitzer Prize. Michael Ealy, Tony Award winner Ruben Santiago-Hudson and Emmy Award winner Ruby Dee also star, with a strong supporting ensemble cast.
