Synopsis

Luton,1987.  When music fanatic Javed discovers the illustrious back catalogue of Bruce Springsteen his world is turned upside down.  Already a creative soul, his passion for music and writing is set alight by the songs of the working-class poet, whose lyrics feel all too familiar to this aspirational Pakistani teenager.

Based on his 2007 book “Greetings From Bury Park“, the film, which comes fully Springsteen-approved, tells how its author Safraz Manzoor, now a journalist, became inspired to become a writer.  It is directed by Bend It Like Beckham’s Gurinder Chadha.

Gurinder Chadha’s ode to Springsteen is utterly joyous.
