The Color Purple ★★★★½

I feel like I’ve been missing out on a classic for 30 years. 

Whoopi Goldberg and Oprah are sensational in this film of a black woman horrible journey of abuse from child to adult in search of happiness. And that dinner table scene? 

Fantastic. 

That said, I am glad his is the 1st time I’ve ever seen it, because I would have spent the last 30 years wanting to punch Danny Glover. 

The ending has me in tears. 

Tears that only Spielberg can produce.
