It’s 1987 and the UK is facing some rather familiar problems – financial hardships, generational divides, extreme prejudice.

Javed (Viveik Kalra) is an aspiring writer, growing up in a traditional Pakistani household – dealing daily with teenage angst, a demanding father and casual bigotry. Everything suddenly changes, however, when a friend enthusiastically introduces him to the music of Bruce Springsteen.

With iconic hit songs by ‘The Boss’ woven throughout, Blinded by the Light is a timely coming-of-age charmer – based on the memoir of journalist Sarfraz Manzoor – that had its World Premiere at Sundance 2019

1h54m
