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 smouldering anger while taking refuge in his music and his steamy love for sexy Apollonia Kotero.

 Cracking modern musical

| | See all zenman1's reviews (1)

This has to be one of the best modern musicals of which there seems to be a big lacking of nowadays. You dont have to be a prince fan to appreciate it but it helps. I have not been a big fan of his more recent works, but watching this again reminded me why I enjoy his music overall.

this film is very under rated by the new generations of this world it is of course a classic in its own right and won many awards in its day still a firm favorite with me as a much lovin earlier prince fan. prince does act very well and the scenes with mom and dad are captivating. The sound track is phenomanal some of the best tunes ever written by prince and are still listened to widely across the world. if you have never seen this film then you should even if its just to rate it.
