THE COLOR PURPLE (1985): Forty years in the life of Celie (Whoopi Goldberg), an African-American woman living in the South who survives incredible abuse and bigotry. After Celie's abusive father marries her off to the equally debasing "Mister" Albert Johnson (Danny Glover), things go from bad to worse, leaving Celie to find companionship anywhere she can. She perseveres, holding onto her dream of one day being reunited with her sister in Africa. Based on the novel by Alice Walker.
