Blinded by the Light (PG-13; 2019, 115 minutes)
A Pakistani teenager experiences racial and economic turmoil while living in Luton, England in the 80s. As a way to escape the intolerance of this hometown and the stubborn views of his traditional father, he writes poetry. When a classmate introduces him to the music of Bruce Springsteen, he sees parallels between the singer's powerful lyrics and his own working-class environment. Springsteen's melodies soon inspire him to find his own voice and follow his dreams. Watch trailer
