Summary
Based on Alice Walker's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, 'The Color Purple' is the richly-textured, decades-spanning story of Celie, an uneducated woman living in the rural American south. Forced to marry a brutal man she calls 'Mr., ' Celie turns inward and shares her grief only with God. But she is transformed by the friendship of two remarkable women, acquiring self-worth ... and the strength to forgive."--Container
