May film

The Color Purple (12A) (musical) is showing in Stanhoe on Monday 13 May.

Stanhoe Village Screen starts the summer season with The Color Purple (12A) (musical) on Monday 13 May at 7.30 pm.

Billing itself as “a bold new take on the beloved classic”, this is Alice Walker’s novel reinterpreted as a musical. In 1909 Celie, a young black American girl, is given away in marriage by her abusive father to a local farmer, Albert, who treats her cruelly. Deliverance comes in the unexpected form of Albert’s mistress Shug Avery, a jazz singer who takes her away from her misery. The rough edges of Steven Spielberg’s 1985 adaptation have been softened but the evocative energy of this movie-musical’s three female leads is magical.
