Blinded by the Light (12A)

Viveik Kalra sitting on his bed surrounded by Bruce Springsteen posters

A heart-warming film about a teenager trying to find his place in 1980s Britain

Director Gurinder Chadha (Bend It Like Beckham) brings us a poignant comedy about a British teen who is struggling to reconcile his Pakistani roots with his British schoolboy experience. Javed (Viveik Kalra) feels like nobody understands him, until he discovers Bruce Springsteen...

In this uplifting film, music is celebrated for bringing different worlds and experiences together and making us feel connected.
