African-American Film Festival: Their Eyes Were Watching God (1999)

Monday, February 4, 2019 @ 7:00pm
Kravis Center for the Performing Arts

This “Oprah Book Club” TV movie was adapted from Zora Neale Hurston’s novel Their Eyes Were Watching God. Covering the first 30 years of the 20th century, the film is set in Eatonville, Florida, a largely black community and the home of free-spirited Janie Crawford (Halle Berry) who was forced into marriage at age 16 with a much older and much wealthier man. 

Janie endures both this unhappy union and a second equally dismal marriage, trapped by the bonds of matrimony and by the rigid patriarchal society of the period. Her only source of happiness is her illicit romance with a younger man known as Tea Cake (Michael Ealy), much to the shock and dismay of her very proper neighbors. (1 hour, 53 minutes)
