get out of the cage

Without this film, I can't imagine the cruelty of sexism and racism at all.

Celie is a submissive black woman. Even though she was raped by her stepfather (whom she thought was her biological father at the time) and gave birth to two children at the age of 14; even though both of her children were taken away and raised by others; Married to a domestic violence man, she silently accepted all this.

But she was lucky. Her sister, Neti, has been bravely resisting fate, even in Africa; her stepson's first wife Sophia is also a woman who constantly struggles with fate, although she offends white people because of her rough character - the mayor His wife, Miss Millie, was imprisoned and became Miss Millie's maid; her husband's dream lover, Miss Shug, was an independent and free woman. If it wasn't for these people who had been encouraging her, especially Shug, Celie wouldn't have gotten out of the cage.

"Purple" tells us that the breaking of sexism begins with pioneers like Miss Shug, who awaken the numb Sealys. The men shuddered when the Celies stood up. At the end of the film, Albert took out Netty's letter to Celie, and Miss Shug's priest father also admitted his "rebellious" daughter.

always getting better.

    I don't know if the handling of emotional details is too forceful, or the director's hope is so strong that I feel like it's too much.
