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.

Purple Haze (I think not)By Emjay69 (341 reviews) from Kidlington, Oxford , 29 Nov 2011Didn't do that much for me. It's well acted and beautifully crafted but it does drag a bit. It's worth a watch as it does different things for different people.
I would not watch it again.

Just BeautifulBy a customer , 03 Oct 2011This movie brought me to tears when I was but 12 years old and many years on I still have the same emotional reaction when i see it. Such a masterpiece and a beautiful cast of gifted actors and actresses. A must see, by far.
Best Film AliveBy a customer , 27 Aug 2011This film was very heart warming and factual about that period was like for back people and how they were treated. The film was a feel good film and had a great story ine.
The one thing that suprised me was that the film introduced Whoopi Goldberg, meaning that must have been her first big role in a film becuase all the film i have watched with her in have shiwn her as the main character.
I would certainly recommend this to a friend but not to ittle children as the film is a little explecit in places and as well as this little children will not understand it. Over all the film was great and I really enjoyed.
Good solid story.By a customer , 09 May 2011Quite a good movie. A strong storyline with fine performances from a great cast. Really enjoyed this movie.Well worth the watching
