Blinded By The Light

The latest feelgood film from director Gurinder Chadha (Bend it Like Beckham), is set in 1987 and interweaves the iconic smash hits of Bruce Springsteen from Badlands to Thunder Road. An inspiring tribute to the power of music and a moving account of the generational and cultural divide between a father and son. The coming-of-age story follows music fanatic Javed, whose world is transformed when he discovers the illustrious back catalogue of The Boss. Already a creative soul, his passion for music and writing is set alight by the songs of the working-class poet, and The lyrics which feel all too familiar to the aspirational teenager, yearning to escape his rundown hometown and the rules of his traditional Pakistani household.

"I guarantee it will make you feel better than any other film that comes out this year." - The New York Post
