Directed Gurinder Chadha’s cross-cultural dramedy is an adaptation of journalist Sarfraz Manzoor’s 2007 memoir “Greetings from Bury Park: Race, Religion and Rock N’ Roll.” A second-generation British-Pakistani teenager comes of age in a small town during the Thatcher era, rebelling against parental and cultural expectations with the help of Bruce Springsteen’s music.~Augustine Chay
One of the best films I've seen in years and based on a true story. The screen writer has seen Bruce Springsteen more than 150 times.
The story is about a young Pakistani boy growing up near London who's life changes after learning what words of Bruce's songs really mean.
The story, directing, acting and, of course, the music are virtually perfect.
