Amazing Film - A MUST SEE
on 7 March 2017
I was lucky to see The Color Purple on Broadway when I was visiting NYC just before Christmas while it was in its final run. It was one of three shows I went to see during my week in New York – it was by far the one that moved me most. British actress Cynthia Erivo, who plays Celie has an AMAZING voice for which she received standing ovations DURING the show!!
I have just recently watched Steven Spielberg's film version of The Color Purple and it was equally as enjoyable as the stage production. Whoopi Goldberg’s plays the role of Celie in an amazing debut screen performance as well as Oprah Winfrey and Danny Glover – again a very strong and emotive film that helped me understand the story better, perhaps I should have watched the film version first.
This film plays with your emotions, at times funny but very moving throughout. This is cinema at its BEST.
Next on the list is to read the original book The Color Purple by AliceWalker.
