Rated 15 by the BBFC


Flamboyant rock musical marking the film debut for maverick pop singer Prince. Prince stars as The Kid, an ambitious and talented young musician from a harsh, poverty-stricken background struggling to win love and musical recognition in Minneapolis. When he meets fellow aspiring singer Appollonia (Appollonia Kitero), he is completely smitten - but when he replicates the abusive behaviour of his father (Clarence Williams III), he looks set to lose her forever. Can he win her back from his arch enemy, lead singer of rival group 'The Time' Morris Day? Essentially a vehicle for the tracks from his album of the same name, the film is loosely based on events in Prince's early career.
