Tyler Perry’s first big-screen production in 2005, “Diary of a Mad Black Woman,” opens with Helen (Kimberly Elise) being kicked out of her home by her husband—literally. The kindness and love shown to her by Orlando (Shemar Moore) aren’t able to truly penetrate until she picks up the pieces of her broken heart. Helen must also fully end the chapter with her former husband, which her mother (Cicely Tyson) points out is vital before beginning a new romance. Perry highlights the important lesson of forgiving yourself in order to become whole again in this love story.
