Blinded by the Light (2019)

February 17, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm

Dir: Gurinder Chadha 12A, UK / US,  Musical,

Film start 7:15pm (doors 7pm), running time 118mins

Javed (Viveik Kalra) is a British-Pakistani growing up in dour and provincial Luton at the height of of the Thatcherite 1980s. A talented writer Javed is an enigma to his hardworking mother and father, who simply want him to get a good education and follow a solid profession into the middle classes. Javed has other, more creative ambitions, and bizarrely enough a chance encounter with the music of The Boss proves inspirational. A feelgood treat especially in these straitened times.

Free, donations welcome.
