Review:
Based on Alice Walker's Pulitzer prize-winning novel, The Color Purple is the richly textured, decades-spanning story of Celie, and uneducated woman living in the rural American south. Forced to marry a brutal man she calls "MR.", Celie turns inward and shares her grief only with God. But she is transformed by the friendship of two remarkable women, acquiring self-worth and the strength to forgive.

Heat and a free factoid:

The initial DVD release of The Color Purple was a DSSL (Double Sided, Single Layer) DVD and was otherwise known as a 'flipper'. You'd have to remove the disc and turn it over halfway through the movie! Some DVD players were manufactured with two lasers (top and bottom) to play the other side, but were quickly superceded by dual layer capable discs and readers.

Thanks for the factoid.....rep
