Event Details

It’s 1987 and Javed is a British teen of Pakistani descent growing up in England. 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.

When a classmate introduces him to the music of Bruce Springsteen, Javed sees parallels to his working-class life in the powerful lyrics. As our protagonist discovers an outlet for his own pent-up dreams, he also begins to express himself in his own voice.

A comedy drama from the director of the 2002 hit Bend It Like Beckham.
