A must see!,
This review is from: The Color Purple (Special Edition) [DVD]  (DVD)
If your idea of a good film is shootings, murders, explosions and vice, it may not be for you. If you have other interests then it IS! The film should have cleaned up at the oscars but the predominantly black cast may have been why it didnt. The film studies mens attitude to women at the time and white to black. Femenists will be seething and chauvanists may think again. Oprah Winfrey and Whoopie Goldberg are no less than sensational in their roles.
All creeds and colours over 14 should see this! 100 years has changed us all for the better.....or has it?
