The Color Purple takes place in the early 1900's in the southern United States of America. The story follows the life of a poor African American girl name Celie who is played by Whoopi Goldberg. When she was younger, her father would abuse her sexually. By the time she was fourteen she had already had two children by her father. However, her father takes the children away from her, and makes her marry a man named Albert Johnson, who is played by Danny Glover. So Celie marries Albert, but he has his eyes on her younger sister named Nettie. During the movie, The Color Purple, Albert treats Celie like a slave. However, things get better for a little while when Nettie comes to stay with Albert and Celie. Of course, things do not last, and after Nettie refuse to make love to Albert too many times, he kicks her out of the house. The Color Purple has a lot more things that happen in it over the course of the movie, but I will not give anymore away. You should know that The Color Purple is like no movie that I have ever seen, and is going to draw you into it like no other movie can. Steven Spielberg does a great job directing the movie, and I feel that he brings something to the movie that you would not get from another director. The Color Purple is one of the best movies I have ever seen.
If you are looking for an American classic film, then you should look no further than the movie, The Color Purple. Although this movie was made back in 1985, you can tell what high quality went into making this movie. Sometimes I feel like movies that are made today do not have the quality that some of the older movies have. There is no movie like The Color Purple, but if you think the movie is good, then you should read the book. The book brings out some of the great points that the movie just could not. Whenever you are reading the book you get a whole different story that lies within the story that you had just seen. That is just how detailed books can be.
