  1. Only time I ever cried at a movie. Viola Davis pouring out her heartbreak at Troy's betrayal. Because she was a good woman.

  2. This is one of the finest monologues I have ever seen. Amazing play/movie Viola Davis is extraordinary in the role of Rose

  3. Why people are disliking the video I mean for real … are you dumb ?? That’s pure … 2 of the best actors I’ve ever seen

  4. I mean to clap in the middle of such a scene! you have got to be crazier then poeple yellin at the cinema trying to tell the actor to watch out.

  5. So..when are men and women gonna finally have the uncomfortable conversation about monogamy, and how it's a damn near impossible, unnatural, expectation to put on one another?! If you've seen either the play or the movie, then you know the other powerful moment came when Troy explained why he won't be giving up the other woman. So Rose admits to wanting the feel of another man and he explains how the other woman makes him feel a certain way. Let's talk about these things before it's too late. Thx for reading and Love to everybody!

  6. I been standing with you! I been right here with you,Troy. I got a life too. I gave 18 years of my life to stand in the same spot with you. Don’t you think I ever wanted other things? Don’t you think I had hopes and dreams? What about my life? What about me? Don’t you think it ever crossed my mind to want to know other men? That I wanted to lay up somewhere and forget about my responsibilities? That I wanted someone to make me laugh so I could feel good? You not the only one who’s got wants and needs. But I held on to you, Troy. I took all my feelings, my wants and needs, my dreams…and I buried them inside you. I planted a seed and waited and prayed over it. I planted myself inside you and waited to bloom. And it didn’t take me no 18 years to find out the soil was hard and rocky and it wasn’t never gonna bloom. But I held on to you, Troy, I held you tighter. You was my husband. I owed you everything I had. Every part of me I could find to give you. And upstairs in that room…with the darkness falling in on me…I gave everything I had to try and erase the doubt that you wasn’t the finest man in the world, and wherever you was going…I wanted to be there with you. Cause you was my husband. Cause that’s the only way I was gonna survive as your wife. You always talking about what you give…and what you don’t have to give. But you take too. You take…and don’t even know nobody’s giving!

  7. I have to do this scene as a monologue in drama and I don’t think I can do this like THIS 😍

  8. its been over 7 years and y'all still haven't correct the "life" in the title. Are ya'll waiting for 18 years too?
