Director: Albert Magnoli
Take a richly human story of survival and triumph, a new soundtrack by the
hottest bands around and the startling presence and musicality of rock superstar
Prince - the man who lived the music - and you've got what may be in Rolling Stone's
words "the smartest, most spiritually ambitious rock 'n' roll movie ever made".
Winner of Grammy and Academy Awards for its pulsating score, Purple Rain
marks the electrifying movie debut of Prince as The Kid, a Minneapolis club musician
as alienated as he is talented. The Kid struggles with a tumultuous home life and
his own smoldering anger while taking refuge in his music and his steamy love for
sexy Apollonia Kotero.
