hell to the yeah.
purple rain is A Movie You Really Should've Seen By Now If You Want To Consider Yourself A Grown Person because it is a movie you would've never ever been allowed to see when you weren't a grown person. for obvious reasons...
here's the plot as summarized by wikipedia: "'The Kid' (Prince) is an aspiring and talented, but troubled Minneapolis musician with a difficult home life. He meets a singer named Apollonia (Apollonia Kotero), and they become involved in an untidy romance."
i mean, RIGHT?! what is not to love about that premise?
add to that the fact that the purple rain soundtrack is ranked among the best albums in the history of pop music. like, for reals. so there's some legit pop music history being made here.
and did i mention The Fashions?
