Thatcher’s Britain, 1987. 16-year-old Javed dreams of being a writer and escaping his traditional Pakistani household. When he is introduced to the music of Bruce Springsteen, his world is turned upside down. Each working-class anthem seemingly speaking directly to him, Javed only grows more creative and determined to stand up to the racism around him and challenge his father’s ideals. Gurinder Chadha’s latest film is a heartwarming and joyful tale reminding us of the universal power of music.
