The Color Purple (2 Disc Special Edition) - John Patton Jr.


Released: 8th April 2004
Classification: PG
Region: 4 (Australia & New Zealand)

Colour it fuller, colour it richer, colour 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 novel brighten the screen in this rhapsodically cinematic adaptation directed by Steven Spielberg.

At the centre of the tale is Celie (Whoopi Goldberg in her movie debut), whose search for fulfilment in a world closed to her becomes a triumph of cruelty overcome by love, of pain eclipsed by joy. Acting and filmmaking honours all came to The Color Purple. But today as yesterday, its greatest honour is the embrace of movie fans everywhere.

      Comments about The Color Purple (2 Disc Special Edition):

      The cast is brilliant. Particularly Whoopi Goldberg and Oprah. I saw this movie many years ago and wanted my teenage daughter to see it. Its a classic. It delivers an important message, sad, funny and timeless.
