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 home life 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 4U, When Doves Cry and the title song in what Rolling Stone calls “the smartest, most spiritually ambitious rock-‘n’-roll movie ever made.”
