Rock star Prince makes an impressive feature film debut in Purple Rain, a rousing contemporary addition to the classic backstage musical genre.

Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today to get through this thing called life and life is a whole lot better with Purple Rain. In this mix of myth and biography, Prince stars as The Kid, a young musician from the wrong side of the tracks searching for the song that will change his life.
Skeleton is an apocalypso rhythm-led ride through soaring tunes reminiscent of a memento mori. Led by singer-songwriter Pedro LDV, Skeleton explores mortality and the fragile world around us.
