Tyler Perry has a very respectable and impressive résumé, as we all know, and it’s only going to get better.
Just recently, Perry’s American thriller A Fall from Grace has been watched by 26 million people on its first week on Netflix. Considering its January 17 debut, Perry didn’t have an ounce of doubt for the success of the film. The multi-dimensional director posted on social media, proud of what he’s done.

“I HAD TO SAY THIS ABOUT A FALL FROM GRACE! Thank you to the 26 million of you who chose to watch in the first week!” You get that bread, Perry.
26 million is quite the feat for Perry, the show, and the team. But they can certainly do more, so if you still haven’t a clue on what it’s about, maybe this will change your mind one way or another:
“Grace Waters (Crystal Fox), a longtime pillar of her Virginia community, stays composed when her ex weds his mistress and her son moves away. With convincing from her best friend Sarah (Phylicia Rashad), she tries putting herself first, and a handsome stranger (Mehcad Brooks) becomes her surprise second love. Yet any woman can snap, and Grace’s new husband soon ravages her life, her work and – many say – her sanity. Shuttered in a cell awaiting trial for his murder, Grace’s only hope for vindication lies with Jasmine Bryant (Bresha Webb), a public defender who has never tried a case. Co-starring Oscar nominee Cicely Tyson and writer/director Tyler Perry, A FALL FROM GRACE is a mesmerizing thriller built from unthinkable secrets.”
“My heart is full. I’m grateful, I’m humbled by it,” Perry said in the Twitter video released Monday
“I’ve always wanted my movies to open around the world, and that was the first time, so thank you Netflix. Thank you. I saw you all around the world watching, so thank you.”
No, Perry. Thank you. May you live long enough to produce, direct and act in films like these. You are a blessing to Hollywood.
