'Blinded By The Light' (Inspire By The Music Of Bruce Springsteen)

OK, this looks awesome, and what a great premise. Blinded by the Light, set to the music and lyrics of Bruce Springsteen’s timeless songs, 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. The movie is in theaters August 14.
