Purple Rain - 2023 Summer Film Fest

Tue, Aug 1, 2023

A victim of his own anger, the Kid (Prince) is a Minneapolis musician on the rise with his band, The Revolution, escaping a tumultuous home life through music. While trying to avoid making the same mistakes as his truculent father (Clarence Williams III), the Kid navigates the club scene and a rocky relationship with a captivating singer, Apollonia (Apollonia Kotero). But another musician, Morris (Morris Day), looks to steal the Kid's spotlight—and his girl.
