A strong adaptation...By JohnnyRoss (373 reviews) from Leeds , 24 Jan 2004
[Highly rated reviewer]This film, based on Alice Walker's award-winning epistolary novel of the same name, is a very strong adaptation of the book. Performances by the entire cast, especially Whoopi Goldberg (her debut screen appearance), is very impressive and worthy of admiration. Music by Quincy Jones is emotive and fitting for the piece. A masterful classic of huge proportions, both emotional and engaging, this film will remain with you for a very long time after watching it.

The Color PurpleBy a customer , 29 Apr 2012I am a fan of Spielberg but I do not consider The Color Purple as one of his greatest movie marvels.
The characters are brought to life with powerful and strong acting from Whoopi Goldberg and co. But the overall viewing of this film was rather tedious and drew away from the highlights of the film.
The Color Purple is worth watching but steer clear if you have a short attention span.
A real gemBy AnnieH (6 reviews) , 23 Apr 2012This quite faithful adaptation of Alice Walker's novel is a powerful and moving film which follows the life of down-trodden Celie. Abused by her father then married off to a much older, bully of a man whilst still barely more than a child, Celie is separated from her beloved sister, Nettie, and forced into a dismal life of drudgery. Superb performances from Whoopi Goldberg and Danny Glover and a strong supporting cast make this a classic.
Purples a great colour!By Georgiegal (5 reviews) , 06 Mar 2012I remembered this film was good, but now I know that it is amazing! Teenagers should watch thus film and would then not moan about their mobile phones not having credit.
Beautiful ActingBy Katiecue (3 reviews) , 16 Dec 2011An excellent film with superb acting. Whoopi Goldberg has exceptional depth as I have only seen her in light hearted, more 'surface' roles.
