Alice Walker’s Pulitzer-winning novel springs to vivid, heart-wrenching life through this celluloid classic, which chronicles the life of a heavily marginalized, African-American woman from adolescence until mid-to-late adulthood. This is a classic movie about the struggles of African-Americans living in the American South between 1919-1940. It tells the tribulations of the life and trials of a young Black woman played by Whoopi Goldberg in a remarkable debut. Oprah Winfrey and Danny Glover also star in this Steven Spielberg film.
