More About Their Eyes Were Watching God - Halle Berry
 
 
 
Overview

Academy Award-winning actress Halle Berry stars in this Oprah Winfrey-produced screen adaptation of the Zora Neale Hurston novel THEIR EYES WERE WATCHING GOD. A staple of many school's curriculums, the book follows Janie Crawford, a beautiful African-American woman living in the 1920s, as she navigates her way through life and love in small-town America. Confronting societal ideas of how a woman (and even more, a black woman) should act, Janie (Berry) looks for fulfillment in the arms of a younger man following two disappointing marriages. While some viewers have criticized the film for leaving out some themes and details from the book, Oprah's screen adaptation definitely has some things to offer. Stunning cinematography, a star performance by Berry as the free-spirited Janie, and an undeniable chemistry between Berry and Michael Ealy (who plays Tea Cake) make this love story enjoyable for those familiar with or new to the story it is based on.
