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.

  1. I don't even have to watch the entire movie + I still bawl at the scenes where her sister leaves and then returns (I'm getting emotional just thinking about it).
