Their Eyes Were Watching God

Zora Neale Hurston's 1937 coming-of-age novel about a Black teenage girl from southern Florida was given new life on the small screen by—who else?—Oprah Winfrey, who introduced the film when it was first telecast in 2005. Halle Berry played the lead character Janie Crawford, with Michael Ealy as her young lover.
