Beloved (1998)

Back on the big screen for the first time since The Color Purple, Winfrey chose to work with acclaimed director Jonathan Demme. Danny Glover and Thandie Newton co-starred with Winfrey in this adaptation of Toni Morrison's novel. While the film, which took 10 years and $80 million to produce, was a critical success, it was a box office flop. Winfrey has admitted it was the worst moment in her career, "The only time in my life I was truly depressed."
