Basically, it was a time when I learned who I was and what I wanted to be, although I feel like I am still figuring that out at age forty. One of my all-time favorite movies came out in 1985 and I love it to this day just as much as I did the first time I saw it.
The Color Purple
There are so many things about this movie that are wonderful, beautiful, touching, educational….the list goes on and on.
My top three favorite sobs (and I mean sob) or as Oprah says “the ugly cry” moments are:
1) when Shug and Celie discover the missing letters
2) When Shug Avery walks into the church where her daddy is the preacher and sings “God Is Tryin’ To Tell You Something”
3) When Celie reunites with her family after years of being kept apart
So if you are in need of a good cry and have about two hours to spare, take a look-see at this great movie. You won’t regret it.
