Released:

Rating:
R
Woman Thou Art Loosed is a 2004 drama directed by Michael Schultz and is an adaptation of Bishop T.D. Jakes' self-help novel. The movie is the story of a young woman, Michelle Jordan (Kimberly Elise), who is struggling to rebuild herself after a lifetime of hardships. As a child, Michelle was neglected by her mother, Cassey Jordan (Loretta Devine), whose primary focus is always herself and never her daughter. The young mother's search for a man led her to Reggie (Clifton Powell). Reggie was a terrible father figure to Michelle and raped her when she was 12-years-old. Unable to get past her history of sexual abuse, poverty and abandonment, Michelle flees her mother's home and begins prostituting and stripping. Her lifestyle leads to incarceration and it is there that Michelle finally has an opportunity to examine her life. Can a chance encounter with Bishop T.D. Jakes (himself) change the path of her life, or is she destined to follow the same path after she is released?moreless
