The Color Purple
dir. Steven Spielberg / USA 1985 / 154’


Danny Glover, Whoopi Goldberg, Oprah Winfrey, Willard E. Pugh

Film description

Based on Alice Walker's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, The Color Purple is a richly-textured, powerful film set in America's rural South that received an astounding 11 Oscar nominations, including one for Best Picture. Whoopi Goldberg, winner of the Best Actress Golden Globe Award and an Oscar nomination, makes a triumphant screen debut as the radiant, indomitable Celie, the story's central character. Goldberg's impressive portrayal is complimented by a distinguished cast that includes Oprah Winfrey and Margaret Avery (who both received Oscar nominations for Best Supporting Actress), as well as Danny Glover and Akosua Busia. The Color Purple is the first Spielberg’s film conveying a serious ethnic and racism problem. Roger Ebert proclaimed it the best movie of the year and later entered it into his Great Films Archive.
