Description


A victim of his own anger, the Kid (Prince) is a Minneapolis musician on the rise with his band, the Revolution, escaping a tumultuous home life through music. While 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.


"Purple Rain became a generational manifesto, while providing the largest megaphone yet for one of the greatest geniuses in pop music."
NPR


"Even those who aren't Prince fans are likely to be captivated by its energy, enamored with its simple, often poignant storyline."
HOLLYWOOD REPORTER


"Rock star Prince makes an impressive feature film debut in Purple Rain, a rousing contemporary addition to the classic backstage musical genre."
VARIETY


"Purple Rain's gazillion-selling soundtrack album has more or less eclipsed the film in pop culture history books."
SLANT MAGAZINE


"It does what musicals are supposed to do: It rides the underlying currents of its moment and renders them glorious."
SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE
