Blinded By The Light - Official Trailer - In Theaters August 14

From writer/director/producer Gurinder Chadha (“Bend It Like Beckham”) comes the inspirational drama “Blinded by the Light,” set to the music and lyrics of Bruce Springsteen’s timeless songs.
“Blinded by the Light” tells the story of Javed (Viveik Kalra) a British teen of Pakistani descent, growing up in the town of Luton, England, in 1987. Amidst the racial and economic turmoil of the times, he writes poetry as a means to escape the intolerance of his hometown and the inflexibility of his traditional father. But when a classmate introduces him to the music of “the Boss,” Javed sees parallels to his working-class life in Springsteen’s powerful lyrics. As Javed discovers a cathartic outlet for his own pent-up dreams, he also begins to find the courage to express himself in his own unique voice.

Based on Sarfraz Manzoor’s acclaimed memoir Greetings from Bury Park, “Blinded by the Light” is a joyful story of courage, love, hope, family and the unique ability of music to lift the human spirit.
Chadha directed and produced the film, which was written by Manzoor, Chadha and Paul Mayeda Berges. The story is underscored by the music and poetic lyrics of Springsteen, who gave Chadha his blessing from the film’s inception.

“Blinded by the Light” stars Viveik Kalra, Hayley Atwell, Rob Brydon, Kulvinder Ghir, Nell Williams, Dean-Charles Chapman, and Aaron Phagura. The film was directed by Gurinder Chadha from a screenplay by Sarfraz Manzoor, Chadha and Paul Mayeda Berges. Jane Barclay, Chadha, and Jamal Daniel produced the film. Paul Mayeda Berges, Hannah Leader, Tory Metzger, Tracy Nurse, Stephen Spence, Peter Touche, and Renee Witt served as executive producers.
Chadha’s behind-the-scenes creative team included director of photography Ben Smithard, production designer Nick Ellis, editor Justin Krish, and costume designer Annie Hardinge. The original score music is by A.R. Rahman.

A presentation of New Line Cinema, “Blinded by the Light” is slated for release on August 14, 2019 and will be distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures.

I am literally crying!! Someone else finally understands!! I remember the first guy that turned me on to Bruce in 1978. John Hargis. I wish I could thank him, all these years later.
Too bad Bruce turned to Leftist politics and supported Democrats that have destroyed our cities and is dismantling our State here in NJ. His blue collar base here is split in half due to his politics.
James Allen
Damn. I think I'll see this movie. And I don't go to movies but once every couple of years. But I love Springsteen, so there's that!
Bruce speaks to everyone. I can't wait For this movie.

I saw the film tonight at a preview screening at CAAMfest 2019 (the International Asian American Film Festival in San Francisco, California). The film was a-w-e-s-o-m-e with music of the times (late 80's) but mostly Bruce Springsteen songs. The director, writer, producer of the film Gurinder Chadha was here in the house to do questions and answers. She said she got the author of the original book to work with her to write the screenplay for this film. Chadha also met Bruce Springsteen and spoke with him about the movie and screenplay and he gave the story his approval himself. I laughed and cried and tapped my feet during this film. I loved how the Boss's music was integrated into the story. Almost everyone will identify with feeling estranged from parents while growing up and struggling to find your way while dealing with pressure from parents. I hope everyone who loves heartwarming stories and excellent film-making will come out and see this film!! It'll be coming out in a few months...
