Review: The Bluest Eye




As a young black girl in Lorraine, Ohio, in the 1940s, 11-year-old Pecola Breedlove has repeatedly been told that she and her family are ugly. Pecola plays with a white baby doll, idolizes Shirley Temple and feels invisible to her community in The Bluest Eye, currently running at Le Petit Theatre du Vieux Carre.

Adapted from Toni Morrison?s first novel and directed by Clayton Shelvin, The Bluest Eye examines how society propagates prejudiced beauty standards.?
