Take a richly-human story of survival and triumph, a soundtrack by one of the hottest acts ever 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 song score, Purple Rain m...arked the movie debut of Prince as The Kid, a Minneapolis musician as alienated as he 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. Prince and The Revolution perform 'Let's Go Crazy', 'I Would Die 4 U', 'When Doves Cry' and the title song. And "Purple Rain showers us with unexpected pleasures," Stephan Schaefer wrote in US. "Musically it is a triumphant firestorm."
