Today, we are featuring a review from one of our users who also happens to be my sister, Louise. The following is what she thought about Steven Spielberg’s first serious movie:

Extraordinary, exhilarating, magnificent… words like these come nowhere close to describing it. Power. IT is power that is inherent even in color itself. Something about the color purple, no matter how subtle, always finds a way to silently scream and say, even if in a whisper, “I’m here.”

The story, with the abundant portrayal of human vices, has a way of communicating the true essence of our existence. It demonstrates the power love exhibits, while showing the weakness hate contains. The color purple has an energy. An energy difficult to explain…it is better if your own eyes drift about and analyze the inherent energy upon the screen and see Celie (Whoopi Goldberg) swing amiss the sunflowers and her sister, Nettie (Akosua Busia), hum the melody of…THE COLOR PURPLE.

4 stars
