Ngaphandle kodlwengulo, umbulo kunye nokubethwa ukuba umlinganiswa osembindini uCelie abandezelekayo, ngaphandle kokwahlukaniswa kwakhe nabantwana bakhe kunye nodade wabo ongcwele, iColor Purple igxininisa umculo ozivayo ophuma kwisiqalo esithobekileyo njengoko esenza umlinganiswa oyintloko.



Inkampani yabakhenkethi evule imiboniso esibhozo ngoLwesibini kunye ne-Broadway San Jose ibeka umboniso oqaqambileyo weentlobo ezininzi zomculo wenkulungwane yama-20 kunye nomdaniso oneempahla ezimangalisayo kunye nemvelaphi yokuhamba kunye nemidlalo emikhulu kunobomi.

Ulindelo lomboniso-onyuswe kukuqhelana nencwadi ka-Alice Walker ye-1982 yePulitzer-winning Prize kunye ne-movie ye-Steven Spielberg ka-1985 eyayidlala i-Whoopi Goldberg kunye no-Oprah Winfrey-iya kudibana. Abo bangaqhelananga nomthombo wemveliso bayacetyiswa ukuba bafunde isishwankathelo okanye banokuba nengxaki yokulandela umkhondo weminyaka engama-40.





Sekunjalo, kwanabo bangakhange bawenze kwangaphambili umsebenzi bafanele bazifumanise bethabathekile yimveliso.

NjengoCelie, ubudala ukusuka kwi-14 ukuya kwi-54 yasemaphandleni yaseGeorgia, u-Dayna Jarae Dantzler usenokungabi yingcamango yakho ye-po 'chile yasekhaya, njengoko u-Whoopi wayekwimuvi, kodwa uDantzler uphumelele ngokufanelekileyo ngexesha lesithathu sokuqala somboniso kwaye uphakama kakuhle kunye. umlinganiswa. Ukusuka kuPam Trotter omkhulu njengoSofia (indima kaWinfrey) kunye no-svelte Taprena Augustine njengoShug Avery ukuya kwi-trio ethandekayo yamanenekazi ecawe uDoris, uDarlene noJarene, umsebenzi welizwi wabasetyhini kumdlalo weqonga ubonelela ngesiseko esiluqilima kumandla abanye abasetyhini abawenzayo. kuCelie.



Kodwa umboniso ubonakala ungoopopayi de uShug Avery (ubonakala ngathi nguShug Avery kuyo yonke ireferensi, njengoCharlie Brown) wagqabhuka kwindawo yexhwayelo njengemvumi yesaluni enebrassy kunye nentombi endala yomyeni kaCelie owayexhaphaza ngokweemvakalelo, uMnumzana.

Okokuqala ezinye izinto ezintsonkothileyo zeyelenqe kufuneka ziqhutyelwe phambili - ukukhulelwa ngenkani kukaCelie (Iindlela Ezingaqondakaliyo) kunye nokwahlukaniswa nabantwana bakhe kuqala kwaye emva koko udadewabo omncinci kunye nomhlobo okuphela kwakhe uNettie, owaba ngumvangeli wasemazweni e-Afrika emva kokuba uMnumzana ehlukanise abantakwethu.



Ngamanye amaxesha amanani okuqala abonakala ehamba kunye nokuchaneka komkhosi okuchasana nokubetha okude kakhulu kumanqaku kaBrenda Russell. URussell, owabhala kwaye wacula iingoma ezimnandi zoo-1980 wabetha iPiano ebumnyameni, kunye nababhali asebenzisana nabo u-Allee Willis noStephen Bray, abakhange balayishe iingoma ezizezona zibalaseleyo, ezizezona zifana ne-ballad. Utshintsho lwenzeka xa uShug Avery ecula iculo elithi Too Beautiful for Words to Celie, esungula umcimbi wabo, kwaye abo babini bakhawuleza bacula i-show-stopper ethi What About Love?

Kuya kubangcono emva kokuphumla kumboniso omangalisayo weLizwe lase-Afrika, eyenzeka ngelixa uCelie efumanisa uvimba weeleta ezivela kuNettie ebezibanjiwe kuye. Ezinye zeempahla zaseAfrika, ngokunyanisekileyo, i-PG-13 ilinganiswe, kodwa ifanelekile kwindawo.



Njengoko uCelie esiba namandla kunye nesithomo, amanqaku azuza umphunga, kwaye ngokwemvelo ingoma ethi The Color Purple yeyona nto ibalulekileyo. Amadoda ayakhula, nawo. I-Colour Purple iye yagxekwa ngokunika abanye abalinganiswa abangamadoda ukuba bangabi nazimpawu zokukhulula, kodwa ukuhlengwa kwabo kubonakala elubala kumculo.

U-Edward C. Smith, umlingisi odlala u-Mister, akakwazi ukubonisa i-nuance eninzi kwisiteji njengoko uDanny Glover edlulisa kwi-movie, kodwa akaze amnciphise kwi-caricature. Ukubetha kombane okufuzisela ukuguqulwa kukaMnumzana kusebenza ngakumbi kunokuba kunokuvakala ephepheni.



Ingcamango yokwenza umculo we-Color Purple isenokungavakali kakuhle kwiphepha, nangona kwakukho ingoma ephumelelayo kakhulu, i-Blues kaCelie, kwi-movie. Kodwa lo mboniso, ngokonyuswa okukhulu okuvela kuWinfrey, ovelise inguqulelo yeqonga, uye wabethwa ukusukela ngo-2005, kwaye awuzukuhamba kuyo uzibuza ukuba kutheni.
