Purple Rain

Purple Rain


Over thirty years on from its original release, Purple Rain remains a dazzling celebration of one of the 1980s’s premier pop albums and that decade’s most thrilling and provocative performer. The late, legendary Prince stars as The Kid, a musician on the cusp of fame beset by his jealousy over his zoot-suited love rival, a difficult relationship with his alcoholic father, and his own increasing arrogance. As his dreams of superstardom become almost terminally upset, The Kid responds in the only way he knows how: focus on the music, crush his rival and get the girl.
