Blinded By The Light celebrates the music of Bruce Springsteen

Blinded By The Light celebrates the music of Bruce Springsteen

The film, which tells the tale of a British Pakistani teen living in Luton whose life was changed by Bruce Springsteen, hits UK cinemas on Friday 9 August. 

Based on the memoir 'Greetings From Bury Park' by Sarfraz Manzoor, Blinded By The Light sees Javed (the Manzoor-inspired by character) find connections between his working-class life and The Boss' lyrics, finding a "direct line to all that is true in the world."

The film is, of course, soundtracked by a number of Springsteen hits, including 'Dance in the Dark', a live version of 'The River' (performed at Madison Square Garden in 1979), 'Born To Run' and the film's namesake, the 1973 hit 'Blinded By The Light.'

Blinded By The Light is in UK cinemas from 9 August. Watch the trailer below:
