Warner Bros. Pictures has released the first official trailer for Bruce Springsteen Blinded by the Light biopic.
We’re back in time a little bit. This film focus on a teenager when he is a young British-Pakistani boy named Javed (Viveik Kalra). He comes of age in 1980s England to the tune of his idol, Bruce Springsteen. From writer/director/producer Gurinder Chadha (Bend It Like Beckham), making this film based on the memoir “Greetings from Bury Park” by journalist Sarfraz Manzoor.
Here is the full official synopsis: “1987, Margaret Thatcher’s England. Javed, a 16-year-old British Pakistani boy, lives in the town of Luton. His father’s recent job termination and the neighborhood skinheads are a daily reminder of the difficult times. He’s living in. What young Javed really wants is to be a writer. Also, something his father doesn’t approve of or understand. And when a new friend loans him a few Bruce Springsteen cassettes, Javed is changed forever. The Boss’s working-class anthems and affirming lyrics seem to speak directly to Javed, emboldening him to find his own voice as a writer. However, he stands up to the racism around him, and challenges his father’s rigid ideals.”
Also, this movie stars Viveik Kalra, Kulvinder Ghir, Meera Ganatra, Nell Williams, Aaron Phagura, and Hayley Atwell. Blinded by the Light film hits worldwide on 14 August 2019. Check out the first trailer below.
