This is a very famous novel by Alice Walker. Unlike other stories, this story is about a young girl who is an African American girl and has seen certain things in life that show her how her kind of people are treated, and what they’re deprived of, and how unequally they are treated.
Women empowerment was not something out of the blue, and it was the result of some dark days that urged women to think about themselves because society wished to curb them in every possible way.
What is ‘The Color Purple’ All About?
Well, the novel comprises the experiences of Celie. Celie was born and brought up in an African American household, and since then, she has been exposed to the regular traumatic stress that the women there had to go through. She wrote letters to God to make him aware of what was going on down here. She lived in an abusive household where her father misbehaved with her and then warned her not to disclose this to anybody except God.
She became pregnant at the age of fourteen, but this was the second time she had conceived. All this was going on in her house with her father, but she couldn’t open up to anybody except God. Celie had a younger sister named Nettie. When a man came to ask Nettie for marriage, their abusive father offered Celie instead. Thus, she landed in an abusive marriage too.
The Coming of this Novel as a Movie
This 1985 hit is all set to return to the screens once again. Back in 1985, this was considered critical, but still, it was a prize-winning movie. The film showcases the harsh and brutal life of Celie Johnson, who is the protagonist here. The story of the black people has always created a sense of pity in the audience. Still, the movie’s motive was far from these, as the audience wanted something that would entertain, but through movies, some harsh scenes were brought to light that widened the view of people.
Because some things cannot be imagined, but still, they do take place. The news about the coming of the movie was made in the year 2018. Though there is no official announcement yet, we’re expecting the movie to be here by 2023.
Is the Movie Going to be a Musical Release?
When the news regarding the movie’s coming was released, it was also stated that it would be a musical. Whatever would be the way, we’re sure that it would enlighten us like no other. Just a little harsh way of showing us the very harsh reality.
What can You Expect from this Movie?
Nothing more than exposure to the reality and the harsh situations that the black women went through. Not only outside the house but also in the house and that too by their very own people. These spine-chilling events are clear evidence of why women’s empowerment was a necessity.
