Directed by Gurinder Chadha (Bend It Like Beckham), Blinded By The Light is in cinemas on 22 August!
Based on the memoir by Sarfraz Manzoor, it tells his story of a Pakistani British teenager growing up in drab Luton, England during the 1980’s and his dreams of escaping. One day, a friend introduces him to Springsteen’s music and it changes his life. Springsteen’s music and words inspire him to find his path, follow his dreams and become the successful journalist he is today.
The soundtrack features a mix of Bruce Springsteen tracks, popular US/UK 80’s tracks, popular tracks from India, and an original score track by Academy Award winner AR Rahman. It will also include a new, unreleased Bruce Springsteen track, I’ll Stand By You.
