Stephen Frears and Hanif Kureishi's Oscar-nominated drama.
Set in the Pakistani community of London, My Beautiful Laundrette follows the fortunes of handsome young Omar who, together with his English friend Johnny, takes over a run-down laundrette given to him by his rich uncle. Together they transform it into a gaudy, neon-lit palace complete with muzak and video screens. Against a background of racial tension and poverty in the rough London suburb, their own relationship, portrayed with tenderness and passion, blossoms to love.
Screening as part of the Film4 Classics season.
