Spielberg 33/33: Episode 10 - The Color Purple
In the lead-up to Ready Player One, we are going through each film directed by Steven Spielberg. Matt (@TheRealMattC) is your host, Marcelo (@MarceloJPico) is your ombudsman, and TFS writer Manish (@TheManish89) is your guest for this episode where they discuss the 11-time Oscar nominee and 11-time Oscar loser, The Color Purple, plus its broadway musical adaptation. Why did this straight white man, in 1985, direct a distinctly black, lesbian story? We'll try and figure that one out.
