This paper discusses the Stephen Spielberg directed film "The Color Purple" based on Alice Walker's award-winning novel of the same name. The discussion focuses on examples of oppression, discrimination, and powerlessness in the film and how these impact the lives of the characters who ultimately triumph over tragedy.

From the Paper:

"Michael Thompson writes of the works of Alice Walker, 'Her poetry, novels and essays frequently and boldly examine prejudice against women, racism, abuse and poverty. Many of her writings explore themes of triumph over tragedy. If any of Alice Walker's works most exhibit these elements, it is her award winning story of Celie's ultimate triumph in 'The Color Purple.' Made into a motion picture directed by Stephen Spielberg, in this analysis will explore the film."
