<strong><em>The Color Purple</em></strong> Blu-ray artwork

Based on Alice Walker's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, The Color Purple is a richly-textured, powerful film set in America's rural south.

Whoopi Goldberg, winner of the Best Actress Golden Globe Award and an Oscar nomination, makes a triumphant screen debut as the radiant, indomitable Celie, the story's central character. Her impressive portrayal is complimented by a distinguished cast that includes Danny Glover, Oprah Winfrey, Margaret Avery, Adolph Caesar, Rae Dawn Chong and Akosua Busia.

The Color Purple marks a new, more mature color in Steven Spielberg's artistic palette. It is an exquisitely crafted, landmark film that will be treasured and talked about for years to come.
