Steven Spielberg’s raw and powerful adaptation of Alice Walker’s controversial, Pulitzer Prize-winning novel; a powerful insight into the problems faced by an African American woman over 40 years from the early 1900s including poverty, racism and sex discrimination.
Greeted with mixed reviews in 1985 when it received 11 Oscar nominations and not a single statuette, the film has been re- evaluated in recent years and is becoming acknowledged as one of Spielberg’s masterpieces.
