In 1909 Celie is given away in marriage by her abusive father to a local farmer Albert who treats her cruelly.

Celie is God fearing and deliverance comes in the form of jazz singer who takes her away to another city far away from her misery where she gets her long due happiness at last.

The cast full of boisterous performances makes the quiet nature of Fantasia Barrino's lead performance all the more powerful.

Danielle Brooks commands the screen constantly with a refusal to back down that is pure joy and Colman Domingo imbues his character with a level of humanity that makes the redemption arc work when it shouldn't.

A must-see crowdpleaser!
