Set in 1987, during the austere days of Thatcher’s Britain, Blinded by the Light is a joyous, coming-of-age story about a teenager who learns to live life, understand his family and find his own voice through the words and music of Bruce Springsteen.
Directed by Gurinder Chadha (Bend it Like Beckham, Viceroy’s House) and written by Sarfraz Manzoor, Gurinder Chadha and Paul Mayeda Berges, Blinded by the Light is inspired by British journalist Sarfraz Manzoor’s memoir “Greetings From Bury Park.”
Feelgood, joyous and life affirming, Blinded by the Light stars a wealth of British talent, from young up and coming stars Viveik Kalra (Next of Kin, Beecham House), Nell Williams (Game of Thrones), Aaron Phagura (Doctor Who) and Dean Charles-Chapman (Game of Thrones, Breathe), to established favourites Kulvinder Ghir (Bend it Like Beckham), Meera Ganatra (PREMature), Hayley Atwell(Avengers: Endgame) and Rob Brydon (Swimming with Men).
Includes live Q&A with Director Gurinder Chadha & Writer Sarfraz Manzoor.
