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.

this fim was okBy LoveCollege (21 reviews) from Cheltenham , 08 Apr 2009'The Color Purple was a very sad film, it was not nice to watch Whoopi Goldberg get bossed around and chased after and god knows what.
The men in the film was horrid I didn't like them one little bit.
SuperbBy Sidney (23 reviews) from Stroud , 09 Feb 2009A beautiful film of the struggle of life in a bygone age. Wonderfully directed and without a single weak performance. Full of strength, sadness, pathos and love, it is both sad and uplifting. Don't miss it.
ExcellentBy a customer from Bridgend , 08 Feb 2009Whoopi Goldberg at her best. A really excellent film and a must watch for everyone.
Timeless ClassicBy a customer from Wakefield , 06 Feb 2009This film is amazing. It is thought provoking, heart-stopping, exciting and generally exhilirating.
I have read the book and the film definitely did it justice. An amazing film from an amazing author, with an amazing director (Steven Spielberg) and cast!
Highly recommended and is definitely a 'keeper'.
