THE COLOR PURPLE (1985)
80’s movies I forgot to watch the first time around month Post #7
Why haven’t I seen it before? The combination of Steven Speilberg and Alice Walker always seemed a little odd to me. I know that isn't a very good reason to put off seeing it for twenty-seven years, but there you have it.
After viewing: It’s a pretty strong and involving drama, I must admit. I’m not usually a big Whoppi Goldberg fan, but she seems perfectly cast in the main role of Ceily.
Other memorable supporting players include Danny Glover as Whoppi's reprehensible husband, Margaret Avery as Shug and Oprah (I forget her last name) as Sofia.
