It's About Life. It's About Love. It's About Us.

Color it fuller, color it richer, color it even more of an enthralling movie experience: in Hi-Def Blu-ray, The Color Purple shines anew. Celie. "Mr." Nettie. Shug. The unforgettable characters of Alice Walker's Pulitzer Prize novel brighten the screen in this rhapsodically cinematic adaptation directed by Steven Spielberg. At the story's center 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 its greatest honor is the lasting embrace of movie fans everywhere.
