The Next Best Picture Podcast – “The Color Purple”

For this week’s main podcast review, I am joined by Lauren LaMagnaJosh ParhamDan Bayer & Tom O’Brien. Today, we are reviewing “The Color Purple” starring Fantasia Barrino, Taraji P. Henson, Danielle Brooks, Colman Domingo, Corey Hawkins, H.E.R., Halle Bailey & Aunjanue Ellis-Taylor. Based on the stage musical of the same name, which in turn was based on the 1982 novel of the same name by Alice Walker and made into an Oscar-nominated film by Steven Spielberg in 1985, the latest version is directed by Blitz Bazawule and features one of the best ensembles of the year. What did we think of the performances, the differences between this and the 1985 version, and how the musical version translated from the stage to the screen? Tune in as we discuss these elements, its awards season chances, and more in our SPOILER-FILLED review. Thank you, and enjoy!
