This is a 1985 American period drama directed by Steven Spielberg, based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel of the same name by Alice Walker.
The film tells the story of a young African American girl named Celie Harris and shows the problems African American women faced during the early 1900s, including poverty, racism, and sexism.
Celie is transformed as she finds her self-worth through the help of two strong female companions.
Heart-wrenching at first, however, it ends up heart-warming.
It is an inspirational and thought-provoking drama.
