(Gurinder Chadha, UK 2019, AD, 117mins)
The music of Bruce Springsteen is the inspiration for this irresistible coming-of-age story. It’s Britain in the 1980s: young music fanatic Javed dreams of escaping his rundown hometown and strict rules of his traditional Pakistani household. Yet when he discovers the illustrious back catalogue of Bruce Springsteen, his world is set alight by the songs of the working-class poet, whose lyrics feel all too familiar. Featuring a fun cameo by Rob Brydon, a great soundtrack and all the ingredients of a guaranteed crowd-pleaser. From the director of Bend it Like Beckham.
This screening is subtitled for deaf people and people who are hard of hearing.
