Alice Walker's Pulitzer Prize-winning story
Color it fuller, color it richer, color it even more of an enthralling movie experience: The Color Purple shines anew in this expansive deluxe 2-disc edition DVD.
Celie. "Mr." Sofia. Nettie. Shug. The unforgettable characters of Alice Walker's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel brighten the screen in this rhapsodically cinematic adaptation directed by Steven Spielberg. At the center of the tale is Celie (Whoopi Goldberg in her movie debut), whose search for fulfillment in a world closed to her becomes a triumph of cruelty overcome by love, of pain eclipsed by joy. Acting and filmmaking honors all came to The Color Purple. But today as yesterday, its greatest honor is the embrace of movie fans everywhere.
