30th Anniversary Reissue

Rock star Prince plays a headstrong, vulnerable young musician known as "the kid" in this surprising 1984 box-office hit.

"The kid" 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.
