It's really interesting to see that, after years of animosity between aspects of Hollywood and the streaming companies, many production companies and studios are opting to release some of their movies on those same streaming platforms, particularly rom-coms, which probably can likely make an easier transition to home viewing than a big budget spectacle. Does this pandemic have the potential to change the balance of power between the movie industry and streaming platforms? Or will there be a return to 'business as usual' once the pandemic ends (although Dr. Fauci has intimated that coronavirus could become a season thing, which sounds horrifying on its face). Movie theaters were already losing business (which many blame streaming platforms for) for non-comic book blockbuster movies. Also, according to this article, there will likely be permanent damage to the industry.
Before it was a movie directed by Tyler Perry (which got mixed reviews), For Colored Girls Who Considered Suicide/When the Rainbow Was Enuff was a revolutionary choreo-poem and theatrical performance by playwright, poet and feminist Ntozake Shange, who passed away this morning at the age of 70. I knew that she had been unwell but read an interview done with her just last year where she appeared to be getting better. Sadly, that wasn't to be.
