      The Color Purple--It is Directed by Steven Spielberg

      Black women's struggle for sovereignty.

      1. Celie: It's hard for me to imagine what happened to this 14-year-old woman. She was raped by her father and gave birth to a son and a daughter. The boy's name was Adam, and the girl's name...

      The Color Purple--A Intoxicated And Quietly Watched Film

      I just finished watching Spielberg's early work, The Purple. The film is different from the video style of the previous masters. It is separated from the science fiction film, and the reborn literary documentary is blowing in the wind. The grasp of the rhythm of the story, the use of color, and the choice of music make a film that can be intoxicated and quietly watched in today's fast-paced life.

      give you some colour see see

      I have to say that the master's lens still makes me use it even now!
          Celie's inner changes were accumulated over time. She suffered inhuman treatment and was brought back to a prison-like place like an animal. Everything she did was passive, and she had no sense of being alive. Forbearance was the only way to survive. Imagine that in such a time and space, there is no motivation for her to break through. It is her sister, Xiuge, and Sophia who are quietly changing her. Looking at those...

      The Sea Of Color Purple

      The movie A Color of Purple was adapted from the book the same title written by Alice Walker in 1982 and then it was directed by Steven Spielberg in 1985. A Color of Purple was awarded the Oscar awards after it was released and it was first about a prominent black feminist story.
      The word “Purple” stands for “distress” as well as “courage” and “insight" in Christianity. The “distress” of a fourteen-year-old girl and the “courage” and “insight” could be found in the character Celie in the...

      All beings, any "I think" is a prejudice, there is no right or wrong, and the values ​​inherent in each person are just one of many values! So I can only talk about my prejudice, but try to be more objective!
            "Purple" is simply all-encompassing and huge, each character can lead to a piece of history, more than a thousand words can describe!
             Why is it called purple? Perhaps purple is the color that is closest to black from black to white, which also shows the embarrassing...

      It's like a Arabian Nights fantasy, and it's just a random fabrication! Not real life at all, and no logic at...

      When it comes to issues of race and feminism, I feel that it should be expressed in calm, serious and depressing tones. After watching "Purple", I feel that this romanticized expression is also very good, and it is also full of emotion and...

    Movie plot

    A strong cast including Whoopi Goldberg, Danny Glover, Oprah Winfrey, Adolph Caesar, Rae Dawn Chong, Akosua Busia and Willard Pugh make the film a superb performance. The film was shot in a lovely place in North Carolina, and Quincy Jones' soul-catching music also added a lot to the film.
    At the age of 14, Celie was raped by a man she called "Pa". In the past few years, she gave birth to two children for him, and both of them were sent...
