I'm not sure why a movie about a black woman was directed by a white man.

One of Spielberg's films I never really got into. A decent story and some good actors.

I feel so hard-hearted, but I was just not that impressed. It does have some noteworthy acting, but the direction is uneven. After watching, look up this word: misandry. Is it?

A color purple is a film that is quite effective in the story it tells certainly helped along by its excellent lead performance. It brings in a large cast around her as well that tend to be interesting, and add greatly to the detail of the film, making for an all around moving film. It might take you a bit to settle in by the brutality shown at times, but nevertheless it is a strong film.

The Color Purple review

An extensive picture involving symbolism's for religion (mention of God), pain (purple color from bruises), equality, positivity (Shug’s character), family (Nettie’s character), maturity (Sofia’s character) and cruelty (Millie and Albert’s character). The locations were really well planned and scenic. Performances from Oprah Winfrey and Whoopi Goldberg brought mesmerizing and emotional performances. The pace though however suffers at times due to a few dragging scenes and side stories.

Screenplay was good if only edited to only keep the essential parts related to the main figure. A few good lines from Shug - “Everything want to be loved.” and “You must look at all the good and acknowledge them because God placed them all on earth.” The Color Purple maybe multi-awarded and nomina...
