“Spielberg’s acclaimed thought controversial screen version of Alice Walker’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel. Whoopi Goldberg made a triumphant film debut as Celie, a woman who tries to overcome the hardships of her arranged marriage to an ill-tempered Mr. (Danny Glover) to find her own identity. Oprah Winfrey and Margaret Avery are both terrific in support as, respectively, the live-in maid to an oppressive family, and Mr.’s mistress, a cabaret singer who contributes greatly to Celie’s flourishing.” (TLA Film & Video Guide)
