Black History Month Film: Purple Rain (1984)

  • Purple Rain Slider Image

USA | 111 min | R | Blu-Ray | Dir. Albert Magnoli

A victim of his own anger, the Kid (Prince) is a Minneapolis musician on the rise with his band, escaping a tumultuous home life through music. The Kid navigates the club scene and a rocky relationship with a captivating singer, but another musician looks to steal the Kid's spotlight- and his girl.

"The film is a love letter to collaboration, to passion, and to the power of music: this is Prince's legacy, brought to life nowhere more memorably than in Purple Rain." -Alexandra Heller-Nicholas
