BLINDED BY THE LIGHT
Tuesday 24 September 2019 at 7.30pm

Viveik Kalra, Hayley Atwell, Rob Brydon

Based on Sarfraz Manzoor’s memoir, this feelgood comedy-drama juxtaposes the transformative power of music – specifically that of his hero Bruce Springsteen – against a backdrop of the racial and economic tensions in 1980s Luton. Graced by a breakthrough lead performance from Vivek Kalra, it explores similar cultural and generational themes as Chadha’s Bend It Like Beckham, but will also appeal to fans of Danny Boyle’s Yesterday and the oeuvre of Nick Hornby.

2019 | Dir Gurinder Chadha| 117min | UK

“This infectiously charming comedy will leave you humming Springsteen tunes for days” – Betsy Bozdech, Common Sense Media
