This screening of the 1984 film featuring Prince & the Revolution is the final installment of Zinema 2's "Minnesota Stories" series. The movie will be followed by Jody Kujawa hosting Prince-themed karaoke.
Prince plays a thinly veiled version of himself, 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.
The plot centers on Prince trying not to repeat the pattern of his abusive father, played by Clarence Williams III, and keep his band, the Revolution, and his relationship with Apollonia, together. His main antagonist is fellow musician Morris Day and his group the Time.
