A young man with a talent for music has begun a career with much promise. He meets an aspiring singer, Apollonia, and finds that talent alone isn't all that he needs. A complicated tale of his repeating his father's self destructive behavior, losing Apollonia to another singer (Morris Day), and his coming to grips with his own connection to other people ensues.

PopMatter's Essential Film Performances - 2013 (50 movies items)

"Prince With the recent spate of putrid film musicals—Rock of Ages, Burlesque, Pitch Perfect, Nine—it’s hard to give the genre the cred it deserves. The key to a great musical has always been the songs, so even if the acting suffers (like 2007’s Across the Universe), the film still hits home. And no American film musical has ever done more with less than Prince’s cult classic, Purple Rain. To say that Prince was the star of Purple Rain is an understatement—it is a semi-autobiographic"

Moviewatcher122's 2016 Film Diary: April (28 movies items)

"April 29 "I'd like to dedicate this to my father, Francis L. It's a song the girls in the band wrote, Lisa and Wendy." Even though I wasn't too familiar with Prince's music, his death still took me by surprise. I listened to a little bit of his music years ago, but back then I didn't really think much of it. Since then I haven't listened to much of his music, but right when his death was announced so many people were uploading his music on YouTube and I had a chance to listen to it this time"
