Prince died this month, and this past week Purple Rain came back to theaters as a celebration of his life and his contributions.
My spoiler free review:
The Kid tries to overcome a difficult home life with music and performing. And purple. A lot of purple.
A young musician, tormented by an abusive situation at home, must contend with a rival singer, a burgeoning romance, and his own dissatisfied band, as his star begins to rise.
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.
