Purple Rain
Release: July 27, 1984

Take a richly-human story of survival and triumph, a now soundtrack by the hottest bands around and the startling presence and musically 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 spritually ambitous rock-'n'-roll movie ever made" Winner of Grammy and Academy Awards for its pulsating song 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 homelife and his own smoldering anger while taking refuge in his music and his steamy love for sexy Apollonia Kotero. Prince and The Revolution scorch with Let's Go Crazy, I Would Die 4 You, When Doves Cry and the title song and "Purple Rain showers us with unexpected pleasures" Stephen Schaefer wrote in Us. "Musically it is a triumphant firestorm"
