Synopsis

Steven Spielberg's adaptation of Alice Walker's grim story of a young black girl (Whoopi Goldberg) struggling to stay afloat in the racist America of the early 1900s. A rich, uplifting and deeply heartfelt experience, it made Academy Award history when it received eleven nominations (Spielberg not included)... and won none. Oprah Winfrey is a revelation as a once-proud bully who suffers a mighty fall.
