“Dearly Beloved, we are gathered here today to get through this thing called Life…”
This screening is in honour to Prince on what would have been his 58th birthday on June 7th.
Based on aspects of Prince’s childhood and life we follow the “Kid” as the talented but troubled frontman of his band, The Revolution. Is he gonna echo the emotional and physical violence of his parents? Or is he gonna become a sensual, sexy, tender, genderfluid, expressive, rocktastic musical megastar?
