Better than before
Why has it taken me so long to watch The Color Purple? I think it's because I had vague notions that it would be something hard to watch. At times, it is hard to watch - the sorts of things that can happen to those made powerless in society are horrifying. However, it's also wonderful. I love the bonds between the various women in this film. It left me feeling better than before, and that's a pretty wonderful thing. 8/10.
