The Color Purple ★★★★

I’m a bit disappointed that there was little to no redemption for Danny Glover’s character in the movie version; that was definitely a highlight of the book for me. That being said, the book had some pacing issues towards the middle in my opinion and I think Spielberg really did away with those and made the story flow much more nicely. 

Also, Oprah brought her A game to this. Wow.
