Synopsis

Academy Award® winner Whoopi Goldberg, Danny Glover and Oprah Winfrey star in director Steven Spielberg's adaptation of Alice Walker's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel The Color Purple. From 1909 to 1949, Celie (Goldberg--Ghosts of Mississippi), a Southern Black woman, gradually gains self-respect as she strives to educate herself and to find love--despite an abusive spouse and a society biased against her race and her sex. In honor of Black History Month, this classic film returns to cinemas and includes exclusive insights from Turner Classic Movies.

One of my favorite movies of all time. I read the book as well and Steven Spielberg did a magically job on this film.
