It's 1987 and the UK is facing some rather familiar problems - financial hardships, generational divides, extreme prejudice. Javed (Viveik Kalra) is an aspiring writer, growing up in a traditional Pakistani household - dealing daily with teenage angst, a demanding father and casual bigotry. Everything suddenly changes, however, when a friend enthusiastically introduces him to the music of Bruce Springsteen.
With iconic hit songs by 'The Boss' woven throughout, Blinded by the Light is a timely coming-of-age charmer - based on the memoir of journalist Sarfraz Manzoor - that had its World Premiere at Sundance 2019.
