Steven Spielberg, gifted creator of Jaws, the Indiana Jones sagas, E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial and other mega-hits, turned The Color Purple into one of his most remarkable successes - a film that won the National Board of Review's Best Picture Award, appeared on 10-Best lists everywhere, garnered 11 Academy Award nominations and earned Spielberg the Best Director citation for the Director's Guild of America.
Based on Alice Walker's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, The Color Purple is the richly-textured, decades-spanning story of Celie, an uneducated woman living in the rural American south. Forced to marry a brutal man she call's 'MR.', Celie turns inwards and shares her grief only with God. But she is transformed by the friendship of two remarkable women, acquiring self-worth...and the strength to forgive.
Winner of the Best Actress Golden Globe Award and an Oscar nomination, Whoopi Goldberg makes a triumphant screen debut as the radiant, indomitable Celie. Her impressive portrayal is complemented by a memorable cast that includes Danny Glover, Oprah Winfrey, Margaret Avery, Adolph Caesar, Rae Dawn Chong and Akoshua Busia. An exquisitely crafted, landmark film, The Color Purple will be treasured and talked about for years to come.

The Color Purple is one of the best films I have ever seen. I have watched it numerous times and still notice different things each time. The film portrays the life of a young girl into old age. It reflects on many levels of emotion on how black women were treated by not only white people but also black men. It's well worth the watch and be prepared for tissue use!!

The Color Purple is the 1982 classic by the mystro Steven Spielberg. Its the story of a young black woman growing up in the deep south in the 1930's. Whoopi Goldberg debuts and is incredable in her performance, the rest of the cast including Danny Glover, Oprah Winfrey, Rae Dawn Chong and Margaret Avery are all also first class in support. You will definately be needing your tissues for this as it is a power and emotional movie. Brilliant and if you havent seen it or havent seen it for a while its a must see.
