Hitting theaters this Friday, Tyler Perry’s Temptation is the latest from the creative multihypenate with Perry behind the camera this time, directing and adapting his own original stage play.
Featuring a cast that includes Jurnee Smollett-Bell, Lance Gross, Kim Kardashian, Vanessa Williams, Robbie Jones, Renée Taylor, Ella Joyce and Brandy Norwood, Temptation follows a young woman, Judith (Smollett-Bell), who dreams of becoming a marriage counselor. Married at a young age, Judith is beginning to feel distanced from her husband, Brice (Gross) and things only get more complicated when she’s asked to work alongside a charismatic millionaire, Harley (Jones). Caught between the pursuit of her dreams and her fidelity to her husband, Judith sets out on a path that could cost her everything.
