BLINDED BY THE LIGHT
Tuesday 15 October 2019 at 11.00am
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.
