The story takes place in the southern United States in 1909. Uneducated black girl Sealy is forced to marry a rude, vicious black man whom Sealy calls "Mr." after being raped by her stepfather. In terror and timidity, she began a life of slavery misery. Fortunately, there is a sister Nanti with him, and there is more joy in the tears. Soon, this short-lived happiness also disappeared from Celie's side. Because "Mr." failed to rape Nanti, he drove Nanti out in anger, and the two sisters were brutally separated. Year after year, Celie looked for the news of Nante in the mailbox at the door, and she always looked forward to the day when she could meet Nante again...

    It is a masterpiece, it is natural, many scenes can be called classics, and the eyes are wet many times, although the ending is too ideal. Classic black themes and feminist movies-even if the director is white and man. although i'm poor, colored, woman, maybe ugly, but dear god, i'm here.

    I think it pisses God off when you walk by the color purple in a field and don't notice it. Whoopi deserves to be Whoopi.
