Black Cinema Series: 'Their Eyes Were Watching God' CL Recommends

When: Sun., Dec. 10, 2 p.m. 2017
Phone: 704-547-3700
Price: $7-9

Zora Neale Hurston’s 1937 novel about a free-spirited heroine who flouts the conventions of a black community at the opening of the 20th century may be one of her best. The 2005 TV movie adaptation of Their Eyes Were Watching God is good but not great. The complex protagonist, played by Halle Berry, is simplified for the sake of narrative clarity, but the film nails the book’s small town setting, shunning nostalgia to depict a suffocating patriarchal society.
