This is news to me...
4 years after the adaption of his novel Woman Thou Art Loosed stormed American theatres (well, maybe not really stormed, but you get the picture), preacher, evangelist, life coach, and author T.D. Jakes, is taking another one of his literary works to movie theatres next month, in a film titled Not Easily Broken.
The pic stars Morris Chestnut, and an actress who's somewhat hot right now, Taraji P Henson.
What's it all about?
After years of disagreeing on what true happiness, success, and love really are, Dave (Chestnut) and Clarice Johnson (Henson) have finally reached a breaking point in their marriage. When Clarice is hurt in a car accident, the obvious truth that more than just her injuries need immediate attention is exposed. Their odds of making it worsen as Clarice begins to see a physical therapist, and Dave develops a friendship with Julie (Maeve Quinlan) and her teenage son Bryson. The acceptance and comfort he finds in them stirs his longing for a family and a passionate partner. As temptation tugs at Dave, and Clarice pulls farther away, they must confront whether their vows are or are not easily broken.
Let the church say amen!
It's directed by Bill Duke, by the way, and will be released theatrically by Sony Pictures on January 9th! Somewhat perfect timing to take advantage of all the attention Taraji P Henson has been, and will continue to receive up until awards season, for her performance in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.
Although, I don't think I'll be rushing out to see this one. Woman Thou Art Loosed didn't do much for me.
Here's the trailer:
