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.

Brilliant To The Awful - Movies Watched In 2015 (324 movies items)

"This movie sports a contrived plotline that sees Prince (referred to only as The Kid) battling rival musician Morris Day for the affections of new-in-town beauty Apollonia and a shot at stardom through a secure spot on the bill at legendary Minneapolis club First Avenue. A secondary narrative thread concerns The Kid's violent home life and his attempts to protect his mother from his raging, abusive father. Anyone looking for nuance and subtlety won't find it in the acting or the direction, but P"

Interesting film facts (393 movies items)

"An early, simpler, version of the unpronounceable symbol that Prince changed his name to during his dispute with Warner Bros. Records is painted on the side Prince's motorcycle's gas tank. William Blinn's first draft of the script was titled "Dreams". Prince didn't like the story and wanted the word "purple" in the title. The success of this project benefitted just about every division of Warner Bros., the box office grosses helped the film division, the soundtrack sales helped the record di"

Biopics Worth Watching (17 movies items)

"It's sad that there are no screen shots to choose from for this film. This is such a lively, encompassing film that you almost don't notice that Prince is actually a partially good actor. At times, you lose your focus in the drawn-out conversations, but that's a feature in most films. I love that my parents will watch this without peeping a word, until the music starts. You honestly don't think about it that much, but as soon as you realize it, you're humming along. I wish this were made more "

"Katsottu: 17.9.2011 Prince on vitun kova jätkä. Purple Rain on keskinkertainen musiikkielokuva, jossa Prince esittää itseään tai ainakin melkein. The Kid haluaa tähdeksi. Hänellä on elokuvahistorian hienoin prätkä, ja elokuvan tunnussävelmä on klassikko. Muuten leffa jätti hitusen kylmäksi."
