This richly-textured, powerful film adaptation of Alice Walker's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel garnered 11 Oscar nominations. In her film debut, Whoopi Goldberg stars as Celie Harris-Johnson, a poor black woman in pre-WWII Georgia who suffers abuse at the hands of her brutal husband before eventually escaping to a new life. Featuring music by Quincy Jones (who co-produced the film), the box office hit also stars Danny Glover, Rae Dawn Chong, Laurence Fishburne and Oprah Winfrey.
