Triple bill of films featuring the pop star Prince. In the semi-autobiographical musical 'Purple Rain' (1984), Prince plays an ambitious young musician struggling to win love and musical recognition in Minneapolis. 'Graffiti Bridge' (1990) is Prince's vehicle for his album of the same name. Also set in Minneapolis, the film stars Prince as The Kid, a nightclub owner who must fight his rival, Morris Day (played by himself), for the love of the beautiful Aura (Ingrid Chavez). In 'Under the Cherry Moon' (1986), Prince plays Christopher Tracy, an American playboy on the lookout for rich women on the French Riviera. Shot in black and white to evoke a 1940s feeling, the film follows the young musician as he finds true love with Mary Sharon (Kristin Scott Thomas in her debut film role), and so ends his wild days and nights of philandering.
