“Talk about a dream, try to make it real”. With this quote from Bruce Springsteen, director Gurinder Chadha jump starts her joyous, crowd-pleasing love letter to the power of rock ‘n’ roll to change lives. Based on rock journalist Sarfraz Manzoor’s memoir of growing up in Luton in the 80s, Blinded by the Light is an exuberant, widescreen expression of the simple truth at the heart of all Springsteen’s music: nobody wins unless everybody wins.
