Taraji P Henson is the definition of booked and busy. Henson who recently hit the big screens in Proud Mary will be back this spring, starring in Acrimony a revengeful tale of a woman scorned, directed by Tyler Perry. Taraji P Henson hopes to continue to star in a multitude of roles, stepping out of the box where Hollywood usually places black women with intentions on breaking the mold.
From Baby Boy to Hidden Figures Taraji P Henson has explored different dynamics of character roles. Her character in Acrimony is a refreshing yet dramatic role, woefully experiencing the emotional roller coaster ride of a cheating husband. Henson’s character Melissa discovers her husband has a second life where he cheats on her and betrays their marriage. Rather than sulk in sadness or forgive and move on, Melissa decides that she must get even.
The movie deviates from Tyler Perry’s typical approach to relationship and marriage drama. Acrimony also hosts the talents of Lyriq Bent (The Book Of Negroes) who stars as Henson’s mischievious husband. Acrimony is set to debut in theaters March 30th 2018. Watch the official trailer below.
