Winner of Grammy and Academy Awards for its pulsating score, Purple Rain marks the electrifying movie debut of rousing Rock star Prince as the Kid - a Minneapolis club musician as alienated as he is talented.
The Kid struggles with a tumultuous homelife and his own smouldering anger while taking refuge in his music. Trying to avoid making the same mistakes as his truculent father (Clarence Williams III), the Kid navigates the club scene and a rocky relationship with a captivating singer, Apollonia (Apollonia Kotero). But another musician, Morris (Morris Day), looks to steal the Kid's spotlight - and his girl.
Even those who aren't Prince fans are likely to be captivated by its energy, enamored with its simple, often poignant storyline. The film is a love letter to collaboration, to passion, and to the power of music: this is Prince's legacy, brought to life nowhere more memorable than in Purple Rain.
