Blinded by the Light (12A)

Pakistani teenager Javed dreams of escaping his life in the smallminded Luton of Thatcher's Britain. He wants more- and Bruce Springsteen is going to show him the way.

England, 1987. Teenager Javed is growing up in Thatcher’s Britain, writing poetry as a means to escape the intolerance of his hometown and the rules of his traditional Pakistani household.


When a classmate introduces him to the music of Bruce Springsteen, Javed sees parallels to his working-class life in the powerful lyrics, and discovers an outlet for his own pent-up dreams.


A timely coming-of-age story from the award-winning director of Bend it Like Beckham, based on Sarfraz Manzoor’s acclaimed memoir.
