A moving adaptation of a powerful novel.
Based on Toni Morrison’s first novel, The Bluest Eye is a heartrending coming of age story about a young black girl in 1940s Ohio. Pecola Breedlove wants nothing more than to be loved, but she’s only met with ridicule and abuse. Confronting turmoil at home, she prays for Shirley Temple’s blue eyes, believing their beauty is the only thing standing between her and the happiness of the white girls at school. By turns beautiful and harrowing, this powerful adaptation explores the destructive power of a racist society and the strength of a community attempting to embrace an era of change.
