The film addresses racial discrimination, human rights issues, and family relationships.

Against the background of white people discriminating against black people, men discriminating against women, and elders suppressing young people, the protagonist of the story, Serie, was at the lowest end of the chain of contempt from the very beginning. We saw in Serry an institutionalized victim, who awakened step by step as a human being, and evolved herself from a weak individual to a person with an independent personality. This difficult process took nearly thirty years.

She once regarded the tragic fate as the only way to go to heaven after death, but Sophia reminded her that if she could create heaven while she was alive, why would she put her hope in the ethereal after death, and Sag's The appearance made her see that even when a woman is alive, she can live a heavenly life, and it is not easy to resist the inherent concept. She has lived in an unfair world since she was a child, and the tragic experience made her feel Suffering has become numb, which is the normal life experienced by women in the past, but she has survived, and even in the long torment, her dullness to suffering has given her a bystander perspective that is detached from reality. Curious, she smiled in the melee and was in it, but her soul had come to a high place. This sense of detachment gave her a sense of indifference to suffering.

People always associate softness with women, but in fact, women's flexibility has more long-term vitality than men's rigidity, just like an old vine that is about to die, maybe just a drop of nectar can be used in cloth. The wrinkled vine skin bursts with new shoots, and Serie's heart is awakened by Sophia and Sag, but she is the one who makes the change in the end. (combining more than the movie and my own opinion)

    In Spielberg's first two decades of work, purple appears in a completely different way, with amateur actors, whites shooting blacks without overcorrect ideology (12 Years a Slave) and without cynicism (Spike Lee). The film revolves around a family/a black woman. With a linear narrative rich in plot, it depicts the life of black people in American society in the first half of the twentieth century and nearly forty years. The complex meaning that penetrates people's minds is thought-provoking and meaningful. Women's predicament and self-awareness awakening, male to female, black and white, it is worth noting that most of the conflicts and confrontations are focused on the black people, rather than the unilateral oppression of white to black. On the other hand, for experienced dream-makers, a wonderful visual language is indispensable, and the sublimated reconciliation choir and the self-respecting and noble purple at the end are poetic and touching. 2q

    The overall quality of the 8.5-point film is very good, but perhaps the biggest tragedy at the Oscars is that there is no particularly prominent point. Although the plot is a little old-fashioned, there is still something moving and memorable.
