Inspired by the teenage life of writer Sarfraz Manzoor (Greetings from Bury Park: Race, Religion and Rock’n’ Roll). Gurinder Chadha (Bend it like Beckham) delivers a film of warmth, affection and social commentary on 80’s Britain. That equally shines alongside its Springsteen rich score.
Performances enhance the warmth, energy and vibrance of Blinded By Light, building characters you truly believe in. While showing the depth and emotion of teenage life, parental conflict and the desperate need for change and group identity. The global power of music and imagination shining from the factories of New Jersey. To the car assembly plants and emerging new communities of South Bedfordshire.
Director: Gurinder Chadha
