2. The Color Purple
The Color Purple is unquestionably a film with a strong female lead. In fact, it's inundated with strong women, and in this case they're just as amazing on screen as they are in the book. Celie is amazing, and watching her grow is like a revelation. The support she receives from Sofia and Shug is beautiful, and to me it defines the way women should treat each other. We're always so eager to tear each other apart, whether we're gossiping about people we know or even taking the time to put down and tear people apart on websites! Look at these relationships, though: who wouldn't want to exhibit this kind of strength?
