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, Adolph Caesar, Rae Dawn Chong and Akosua Busia.

The Color Purple, which also marked a new, more mature color in director Steven Spielberg's artistic palette, is an exquisitely crafted, landmark film that will be treasured and talked about for years to come.

Industry Reviews

'Unashamedly emotional, it either totally grabs you or leaves you cold.' - Angie Errigo, Empire Magazine

'It is a great, warm, hard, unforgiving, triumphant movie, and there is not a scene that does not shine with the love of the people who made it.' - Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

'Spielberg adapts Alice Walker's novel with respect and (heretofore unseen) mature artistry.' - Scott Weinberg, eFilmCritic.com
