OF BOYS AND MEN
Produced by and starring Robert Townsend, Of Boys and Men is a moving drama set in Chicago’s West Side that highlights the strength of family and the power of love. The long-awaited day has finally arrived: Holden and Rieta Cole’s eldest son Terrell is graduating from college. But tragedy strikes suddenly, and now the Coles are forced to cope with overwhelming grief on top of life’s everyday challenges. While Holden battles demons of pain and regret, his sister Janay steps in to help guide her loved ones on a healing path… and save her young nephew Z from making a terrible mistake. This touching drama stars Townsend with Oscar nominee Angela Bassett and Emmy nominee Victoria Rowell. The film debuted at the 2008 Pan-African International Film Festival and is a WHV acquisition.
THE COLOR PURPLE
Based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel by Alice Walker and directed by Steven Spielberg, The Color Purple spans the years 1909 to 1949, relating the life of Celie (Whoopi Goldberg), a Southern black woman virtually sold into a life of servitude to her brutal husband, sharecropper Albert (Danny Glover). Celie pours out her innermost thoughts in letter form to her sister Nettie (Akousa Busia), but Albert has been hiding the letters Nettie writes back, allowing Celie to assume that Nettie is dead. Finally, Celie finds champions in her daughter-in-law, the take-no-mess Sofia (Oprah Winfrey) and the glamorous Shug Avery (Margaret Avery), a local girl-turned-juke joint singer.
