Toni Morrison – The Pieces I Am is a Timothy Greenfield-Sanders directed documentary about the Nobel Prize, Pulitzer Prize and American Book Award Winning Author, Toni Morrison.

The film promises an intimate look at the legendary storyteller, through an examination of her life, her works and the powerful themes in her literary career.

Featured in the documentary are, besides Morrison herself, Oprah Winfrey, Angela Davis, Russell Banks, Walter Mosley, Fran Lebowitz… 

Though aware of them, right now I’m not quite ready to read Morrison’s books. Especially since based on this trailer, they’re guaranteed to make the reader quite angry and enough to cry.

I am however, very willing to hear those who know Morrison best talk about her impact and achievements , since I really do love stories of empowered and truly extraordinary women.

Toni Morrison – The Pieces I Am Release Dates: June 21st, 2019 (US)…

Fantasy / adventure, A Wrinkle In Time is a story about a young girl called Meg. Meg is sent into space with her brother and a friend by three peculiar beings.  Together they must venture there to find Meg’s scientist father after his sudden disappearance. Directed by Ava DuVernay; A Wrinkle In Time stars Chris Pine, Reese Witherspoon, Oprah Winfrey, Gugu Mbatha-Raw…

Reasons to watch this movie include the story, which is completely new to me, the magic, the talented cast and the beautiful visuals. I’m liking Oprah Winfrey as the voice of the narrator, as well as the hint of a vibe similar to Alice In Wonderland and The Wizard Of Oz. 

Mindy Kaling, Zach Galifianakis,  Michael Peña, Bellamy Young and André Holland also star.

A Wrinkle In Time Release Dates: March 9th, 2018 (US), 23rd March, 2018 (UK)…
